It is only by shear luck or miracle that we have this spectacular bottle of whiskey intact today.  This isn't just a bottle of Four Roses Prohibition Bourbon in it's original tamper-proof container with little to no oxidation to the tin or marring to the colorful graphic design on the exterior.  This obscenely rare bottle of bourbon was actually made by the iconic distiller Albert Blanton.  His career started at the age of 16 as an office boy at the George T Stagg Distillery.  He went on to eventually become the President of the distillery.  Along the way he worked every aspect of the business and showed great aptitude.  He was made President in 1921, the very beginning of the prohibition and the beginning of the end for most distilleries.  But not for Albert Blanton or the Stagg Distillery. He refused to give up.  He secured a government contract to produce medicinal whiskey and the distillery thrived. It is because of his leadership and vision and his significant positive impact on the industry that the finest Single Barrel Bourbon is named to honor Albert Blanton.

This item has been in the House of Glunz cellar for 90+ years.
