Old Potrero is introducing Hotaling’s 11 Year Old Whiskey, a single-barrel, pot-distilled 100% malted rye whiskey aged in once-used charred fine-grain American oak barrels that previously held Old Potrero Straight Rye Whiskey. Hotaling’s Whiskey, which varies from other Old Potrero whiskies in the barrel-aging, commemorates the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, celebrates San Francisco’s remarkable rebirth, and the A.P. Hotaling & Co whiskey warehouse on Jackson Street that miraculously survived the disaster.
“Old Potrero Hotaling’s 11 Year Old Whiskey exhibits an incredible intricacy and depth of flavor that reflects how rye evolves with extended barrel aging,” says Master Distiller Bruce Joseph, who has been part of the Anchor distilling team since it started as a secret project under Fritz Maytag in 1993, experimenting with creating rye whiskies in the style of pre-Prohibition distillers.
Hotaling’s 11 Year Old Single Barrel is bottled at 50% ABV and will retail for $115. This new release is extremely limited, with less than 200 bottles available in California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Texas and New Jersey.
