Subtle Spirits is more than your traditional independent bottler. Part spirits purveyor, part alchemist. Their ideas are brought to life by original artwork produced in collaboration with artists to deliver an experience that extends beyond the glass, canvas, or mind.

Bastard’s Blend was blended from over 40 different whiskies over a year-and-a-half-long period. Made from both the 95/5 and 51/49 rye mash bills from MGP in Indiana and four different bourbon mash bills–two from Indiana and two from Kentucky. The average age of the whiskey is 7.7 years. The blend was assembled in three different casks: a re-used sherry cask, a second-fill cabernet sauvignon cask, and a second-fill American oak cask. It was then vatted in another second-fill American oak cask, where it was mixed together. It was bottled on July 19, 2023, with minimal filtration. The blend yielded just 44 gallons, producing 222 total 750 mL bottles, all bottled and labeled by hand.
