Larceny is a small batch wheated bourbon from the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville as part of the Heaven Hill family of spirits. The name derives from stories of John E. Fitzgerald (of Old Fitzgerald family fame) habit of using his personal keys to the bourbon warehouses to 'liberate' barrels of his favorite bourbon to give to family and friends. There have been numerous reports that Heaven Hill intends to replace the Old Fitzgerald line with larceny, but they are thus far unconfirmed.
Larceny is a small batch bourbon (100 barrels or less) of barrels from the middle three floors of the aging warehouse. The barrels that go into each batch are aged anywhere from 6 to 10 years. It is bottled at 92 proof.
