All proceeds from the sale will benefit Robin Hood, New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization.

This fine spirit begins with notes of well-aged cedar, campfire and soft leather. The finish includes sweet notes of vanilla bean, light caramel and raisin. A precious 34 bottles of Blade and Bow 24-Year have been waiting years to be enjoyed, so it’s important to sip slowly and responsibly.
