Bardstown Bourbon Company to release Goodwood Brewing Company Walnut Brown Ale bourbon April 1

March 10, 2020

Modern distillery will debut second collaboration with Louisville brewery



BARDSTOWN, Ky. (March 9, 2020) – – – The Bardstown Bourbon Company, 1500 Parkway Drive, will launch its second expression with Louisville’s Goodwood Brewing Company as part of its Collaborative Series on Wednesday, April 1. Available throughout Kentucky and Indiana only as a limited release, Bardstown Bourbon Company Goodwood Brewing Company Walnut Brown Ale is an exceptional high-proof 9-year-old Tennessee straight bourbon whiskey aged in Goodwood walnut brown ale casks for 18 months.

“This spirit is very complex, with a layered pairing of walnut, toffee, oak, biscuit and malt notes,” said Bardstown Bourbon Co. head distiller Nick Smith. “The subtle finish of ale really enhances this one-of-a-kind pour.”

The Bardstown Bourbon Company Goodwood Brewing Company Walnut Brown Ale will be the latest in a line of innovative blended spirits from the modern distillery, which saw new products finished in brandy, French oak wine, and mistelle barrels in 2019. Last October, the bourbon and beer companies collaborated on an 11-year-old bourbon finished in honey ale casks.

“The previous collaborative release was rated by Esquire Magazine as a Top 29 Bottle of Booze in 2019,” said Goodwood Brewing Co. CEO Ted Mitzlaff. “In my opinion, the Walnut Brown finish is every bit as amazing as our Honey Ale finish. Fans of Bardstown Bourbon Co. and Goodwood will be thrilled with this product!”

This product will be released in conjunction with Bottle & Bond Kitchen and Bar’s Distilled Dinner Series #2, a private culinary and bourbon experience at the distillery’s in-house restaurant, on Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3 at 6:30 p.m. Cost for the quarterly dining experience is $100 per person, with tax and gratuity not included. All tickets are final and non-refundable within 72 hours of the event. Limited seating available. For more information and reservations for Thursday night, visit; and for Friday night, visit
