By Marla Toncray, The Ledger Independent

Company officials with The Old Pogue Distillery, LLC, announced the release of the first barrel aged whiskey distilled in Maysville in more than 70 years.

The limited quantity brown spirit will be available only at The Old Pogue Distillery in Maysville beginning at 1 p.m., on Wednesday, May 1. The release of Five Fathers Pure Malt Rye Whiskey, a barrel aged, 55 percent alcohol by volume (110 proof) whiskey, is the culmination of several years of planning by the Pogue family, and is the first barrel aged whiskey distilled and aged by one of Kentucky’s legendary bourbon whiskey families since before Prohibition.
