Just 700 jugs of the 13-year-old bourbon will be released. Why jugs? Because per a press release, bourbon lore has it that it was around 1870 when the first jugs of bourbon started shipping from Ohio River ports. The jugs were utilized at that point for convenience, as they were more convenient to ship and sell than barrels. The jugs for the new Uncle Boojie’s release were custom-made by Louisville, Ky.-based Stoneweare & Co.
