It’s no secret that it takes good water to make good bourbon. Rabbit Hole Distillery’s special Single Barrel release, Cavehill, is bringing a little extra local flavor to the table.
Rabbit Hole owner, Kaveh Zamanian, said “The landmarks project is a way of us celebrating our hometown, shedding light and showcasing Louisville.”
Six iconic landmarks are featured on limited edition bottles. We are honored that the Louisville Water Tower is among the select six.
“To be considered a Louisville landmark just confirms the quality and the care that this company has had for the community since 1860. We know that our water is the best, but to see Rabbit Hole endorse it as well, it makes it even all the more special. This is an incredible opportunity for Louisville Water to be in the spotlight along with other local landmarks,” said Kelley Dearing Smith, Louisville Water Vice President of Communications.
Rabbit Hole hosted a special event Thursday night, highlighting all of the labels designed by Louisville native and New York artist, Tara Lubonovich.
In addition to the artwork displays, each landmark included a unique presentation. For Louisville Water, guests got a rare look at the original drawing of the Water Tower as well as a restored copy.
“I drive by the Water Tower all the time. I am familiar with the history of the Water Tower. Water is such an important part of our community, obviously with the bourbon industry. I just thought that it’s a natural for us to showcase the Water Tower,” Zamanian said.
The other five landmarks that appear on the bottles are the Louisville Palace, Speed Art Museum, Bowman Field, Hogan’s Fountain at Cherokee Park, and the Big Four Bridge.
Thursday night’s attendees had a chance to buy a bottle before they’re available to the public. Be on the lookout for this exclusive collection!
