Rare Perfection 15 Year Old Optimum Proof Batch#1

Rare Perfection is a boutique bourbon brand owned by Allied Lomar in California, who's other products include Very Olde St. Nick, Wattie Boone and the Old Man Winter bottles. They have been sourcing bourbon and bottling it for several decades, and they are all easily identified by their uniform use of the same cursive script-style typeface. Company president, Marci Palatella, was Julian Van Winkle III's agent in the Japanese market for many years, and their early bottlings were contracted to him in his Old Commonwealth distillery.

The Van Winkle partnership with Sazerac in the early 2000s ended this agreement however, with the production of Allied Lomar bottles such as this moved to Willett distillery, where they were bottled by its owners, Evan Kulsveen's  Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. The stills at Willett were silent at this point and KBD were sourcing most of their bourbon from Heaven Hill. Many of these releases have become legendary and are among the most sought after of all American whiskies.

Allied Lomar opened their own Preservation distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky in 2018. In doing so, they resurrected brands like this and Very Olde St Nick which had been dormant for some time. This was bottled using a 15 year old Canadian whiskey sourced from Alberta Distillers.
