Heaven Hill

Evan Williams 'Extra Aged' goes by the name 'Black Label' in the US. It's distilled at Heaven Hill in Bardstown Kentucky and is a minimum of two years of age given that it's a 'straight' bourbon whiskey - one hopes a wee bit more given the 'extra aged' moniker. The brand was founded in the mid 1900's though the labelling would have you believe that settler Evan Williams founded it in 1783 and that its been in existence the whole time. Ah, marketing.

Larceny is not the first of Heaven Hill's whiskey's to band about the Fitzgerald name. Old Fitzgerald was originally produced in 1870 by John E. Fitzgerald in Frankfort, Kentucky. Passing into ownership by Pappy van Winkle and production at the famous Stitzel-Weller Distillery, the brand was sold (along with Bernheim) to Heaven Hill in 1999.

Rittenhouse Square Straight Rye Whiskey was launched in 1934 as a two-year old rye whiskey by the Continental Distilling Corporation of Philadelphia. As the twenty-first amendment to the United States Constitution (the amendment which repealed prohibition) was passed in December of 1933, the illicit origins of this bottling are plain to see. Fast forward to 2017 and Rittenhouse Straight Rye 100 proof still wears its history proudly.
