Blanton’s Single-Barrel Bourbon is featured each year at Whisky Live in Paris and Singapore in a collector's item package designed by COHO Creative. Making its appearance during the pandemic, the package takes a comforting approach, welcoming us to Blanton’s hometown of Frankfort, Kentucky. A map of the city is gold embossed on a craft board substrate with the woody feel of bourbon barrels and a char pattern is printed on the inside, evoking an aesthetic both luxurious and provincial. The cartography theme continues on the seals which are styled after federal revenue stamps from prohibition.
