Legacy in a Bottle:
A Tribute to Dave Pickerell 

Acclaimed Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, Hillrock Distillery, distilled and crafted a once-in-lifetime bottling: Hillrock Single Cask strength Bourbon, finished in small French Sauternes oak barrels. The project came to fruition when Dave himself was at our shop conducting a tasting. Since many of us at 67 Wine are Bourbon fanatics, having an all-American master distiller spearhead a bottling for us was a no brainer. But, unlike other bourbon projects we have done, Dave worked closely with us, tasting with our buyer and staff many barrels, finally picking the barrel, the cask strength proof and final aging technique, finishing this small single barrel selection in small cask French Sauternes oak, imparting the perfect flavors and most personal touch.

We now have the pleasure of offering that single small barrel, numbering just 180 bottles.

Hillrock Distillery has the distinction to be located in the scenic Hudson Valley. Their philosophy remains embedded in tradition: “Hillrock is proud to be one of the few “field-to-glass” whiskey producers in the world and the first USA distillery since before Prohibition to floor malt and hand craft whiskey on site from estate grown grain. Hillrock’s commitment to quality embodies the rich history of artisanal distilling in the Hudson Valley. By controlling every aspect of production from planting & harvesting heirloom grains, to smoking our malt, to crafting whiskies in our copper pot still, to aging in small oak barrels and hand bottling, we are able to create the highest quality whiskies reflecting the unique local terroir.”

Tasting Notes: Honey amber nuances with a complex nose of caramel, vanilla bean, nuts and oak with hints of orang blossom, lemon zest and honey. The palate is full and round, with nutty flavors of honey coated roasted nuts and cinnamon complimented by warm toffee. Caramel, vanilla balanced by elegance nuances provided by the sauternes barrel. The finish is enticingly elegant with plenty of depth and weight.
The news of Dave's sudden death in early November rocked the American whiskey industry to its core. Besides his many accolades, and being one of the leading Master distillers in the world, Dave was a larger-than-life human with lust for life and whiskey: personal, kind, friendly, thoughtful and happy. At 67 Wine, we had the chance to establish a great and personal relationship with Dave. Whenever he visited NYC, Dave made it a point to stop by to show us his latest projects, conduct in-store tastings or just simply talk about whiskey.  We will never forget Dave and cherish the chance we had to work with him. Bottling our own expression of Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon Cask Strength Sauternes Finish was a true dream come true! Dave, we will miss you and forever remember your legacy and friendship.
