A bottle of Larceny Bourbon next to a cocktail
Larceny Bourbon Has Quite A Murky History
Unleashed in 2012 by the Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky, Larceny Bourbon carries the name John E. Fitzgerald on its label, which is indicative of its rich history.
As a bonded U.S. Treasury Agent, Fitzgerald had keys to the storage areas where bourbon barrels were kept. He snuck into rickhouses to sample bourbon and bring some home.
When barrels were moved, his thievery was discovered, as some of the barrels were lighter than what they should have been. These lighter barrels became known as Fitzgerald Barrels.
Though Larceny may not have been the first bourbon label to use Fitzgerald as creative inspiration, Fitzgerald is forever captured in Larceny's lineup of bourbon bottles.
