Fortuna was a prolific brand in the United States from the late 1800’s until the 1960’s, when they closed the doors on the distillery. It is now being revitalized for a new generation of whiskey lovers by the people behind Rare Character Whiskey - Andy Shapira, Pablo Moix, and Peter Nevenglosky.
At the height of America's original whiskey boom of the late nineteenth century, a German immigrant named Phil Hollenbach crafted a brand called Fortuna that helped define the early days of the modern Bourbon industry. Hollenbach left a lasting mark on the whiskey trade having found great success in Louisville, Kentucky. He strived to delight customers far and wide by sharing his "Taste of Good Fortune."
Over a hundred years since its inception, Fortuna Bourbon has now been revitalized for a new generation of whiskey lovers to celebrate. Aged a minimum of six years and hand-selected by the folks behind Rare Character Whiskey, the spirit of Hollenbach's passion and dedication lives on in this remarkable Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Orange blossom honey and plums. An excellent brightness of cherry blossom and citrus oil. The palate is viscous. Lots of caramel, cherry, and baking spice. It balances nicely with each sip showing off a little more of each note. The finish is long with plums, toasted sugar, and tobacco.
