The fi nal two ingredients are a secret. The suggested retail price is $42. RAVEN'S LACE PEACHBERRY WHISKEY Heaven Hill Brands has announced Raven's Lace PeachBerry Whiskey, which infuses peach and strawberry fl avors with the smoothness of Bourbon whiskey at 60 proof.

Raven's Lace PeachBerry Whiskey is avail- able in 750ml bottles for a suggested price of $14.99. BOWER HILL WHISKEYS Bower Hill has released a single barrel, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that commemorates the Battle of Bower Hill, which was the fi rst and only known bloodshed of the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. Each barrel is distilled and aged in Louisville and yields 300 bottles, which are labeled with batch, barrel and bottle numbers. At 94 proof, the bourbon gives oak, tannin, and lush/spicy tastes, accord- ing to the company, with a long, smooth fi nish. Bower Hill Bourbon has a suggested retail price of $69.99 for a 750ml bottle. The company has also released Bower Hill Reserve Rye, a limited edition, small batch straight rye whiskey with a two-grain mash bill of rye and malted barley.
