LAS VEGAS (March 2022) – SAHARA Las Vegas announces its brand-new exclusive whiskey label in partnership with Rare Character Whiskey Co. The extremely rare IRT-23/BG#38 barrel—never released before and never to be released again—is a five-year high-rye, straight bourbon aged in Tennessee and bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky. Created by restaurateur and whiskey aficionado Pablo Moix, Rare Character Whiskey Co. was created out of Moix’s love for collecting and producing rare and distinctive whiskies. The limited-edition SAHARA Las Vegas high-rye bourbon barrel is available at Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabhouse and Sports Bar, CASBAR Lounge and The Tangier while supplies last.
“Perfect for memorable occasions and celebrations at SAHARA Las Vegas, this distinctive high-rye bourbon is one of Rare Character Whiskey Co.’s finest small batch selections,” said Nate Hedlund, director of beverage, SAHARA Las Vegas. “It’s distilled in the same style pioneered by bourbon legend Jim Rutledge, who worked in the bourbon industry for more than 50 years.”
Whiskey enthusiasts can also look forward to SAHARA Las Vegas’ next barrel release of Rare Character Whiskey Co.’s straight Kentucky rye whiskey in the coming months.
