Inspired by the Quality of A.H. Hirsch

Modern Hirsch Whiskey Brand

A.H. Hirsch was an investment banker that invested in the Schaefferstown Distillery in the decades leading up to its shutdown in 1989 in an effort to keep it operational. The distillery was a historic landmark for American whiskey in operation for more than two centuries, and while it would eventually close, his contribution would ultimately result in what many consider to be the finest expression of bourbon ever made, the legendary A.H. Hirsch Reserve 16 Year Old. Today, Anchor Distilling Company is proud to celebrate the Hirsch heritage through a range of sourced selections, most notably being the Hirsch Small Batch Reserve Straight Bourbon.

Hirsch Small Batch Reserve is a blend of bourbons ranging from seven to nine years old, which is exceptionally mature for bourbon at this price point. Two mash bills are married together, one with 21% rye and the other with 35% rye. Rye content of the final blend is approximately 26%. High rye content adds spice notes while balancing the sweetness of the corn. The rye is sourced from Northern Europe and the corn is sourced from Indiana and Ohio. 46% ABV
