If you need further proof that great things come in 3’s, we present the second edition of the Blood Oath Trilogy! This special limited release features Blood Oath Pacts No.4, No. 5. and No. 6. But, in case you’re not familiar, here’s some information about Blood Oath and each of the individual pacts in this collector edition case.
What is Blood Oath?
Since 2015, every batch of Blood Oath has been the work of one man, Master Distiller John Rempe.
Each Pact Attests:
That every batch of Blood Oath is the undertaking of one man — a student of both bourbon and science. Loyal to no one family, favoring no one distillery and bound by no one philosophy – this bourbon connoisseur has one goal in mind – to seek out bourbons rare and wonderful, famous and forgotten. Then bottle them in combinations previously unimagined for a lucky few. Not to cater to anyone’s loyalties, he has sworn to never reveal where he finds his bourbon, but only to promise to choose and make the best he knows. Loose lips never tasted something so special.
Each Blood Oath is a combination of three extra aged bourbon whiskeys, with one from each year’s trio finished in a unique secondary cask.
