Very Olde St Nick Cask Strength Summer Rye

Very Olde St Nick is a boutique bourbon brand owned by Allied Lomar in California, who's other products include Rare Perfection, 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 Rare Perfection which had been dormant for some time. This "summer rye" was bottled using whiskey sourced from an un-named distillery
