BourbonBlog.com is first to report that Diageo plans to release a collection of rare and older aged whiskeys. The collection will be called the Orphan Barrel Lost & Found Whiskey Company.
Ranging from 15 to 27 years old, some of whiskeys in the collection appear to be sourced from Diageo-owned George Dickel Distillery as Tullahoma, Tennessee is mentioned in materials and on the labels pictured in this story.
However, other whiskeys in the collection have been confirmed by Diageo to be Kentucky Bourbons.
The first to be released in the collection may be the Barterhouse Whiskey, a 20 year old whiskey which will retail for $60 a bottle.
Others in the collection will be Strongbox at 15 years old, Rhetoric at 19 years old, and Old Blowhard at 27 years old

Marketing materials state the following:
“Orphan Barrel Lost & Found Whiskey Company, we prides ourselves in finding lost barrels of rare and delicious whiskey – dusty and long forgotten in the back of the rickhouse – and giving them a home.
We are about craft. Quality. And truth. But we also like to have a little fun.
All of our whiskey is hand bottled on a little line in Tullahoma to ensure these rare whiskies are treated with the love that they deserve.”
