RD1 is a local Lexington, KY bourbon company that launched in 2020. Football Head Coach Mark Stoops is a principal investor and owner of the company pushing for excellence, purity, and the Kentucky spirit. William Tarr is a limited release line of RD1 paying respect to a Lexington entrepreneur that help found Kentucky’s bourbon business. William Tarr was a Lexington businessman who, in the late 1800s, helped build and create Lexington’s first federally registered distillery.
Currently there are two bottles out. The first is the Manchester Reserve named after Manchester St. It is an 8-year rye mixed with a 7- and 8-year bourbon at about a 60/40 split. This signature whiskey recently won gold at Denver’s International Spirit Competition as well as Silver at San Francisco’s International Spirit Competition. It’s a high proof whiskey with fantastic tasting notes. The second is a 12-year straight Kentucky bourbon that has had 12 great years of aging in our beautiful Kentucky summers at 120 proof. This bottle is called the Inheritance named after the legacy we have inherited and must preserve. Both bottles are limited releases, meaning when they are gone, they are gone.
Come on out to the Beaumont Kroger Wine and Spirits Shop in Lexington on Saturday, June 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to meet Coach Stoops.
