Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon has its origins in the history of John E. Fitzgerald and the Old Fitzgerald brand. Heaven Hill's Master Distillers select a limited number of barrels from specific floor locations in the rickhouse for Larceny’s six-year-old taste profile. Continuing the tradition of Old Fitzgerald using wheat in place of rye as the secondary grain in the mashbill, Larceny uses more wheat than any of its competitors for a softer, rounder character. Larceny is one among a family of Heaven Hill's one-of-a-kind wheated Bourbons including Larceny Small Batch, Larceny Barrel Proof and Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond.

This superb, multi-award winning Small Batch Straight Bourbon makes a great bourbon gift for someone special or corporate gift. Buy here in our online liquor store and get delivered direct to your door, we deliver nationwide.
