September has arrived! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for whiskey drinkers. Not only is September National Bourbon Heritage Month, it is also the time for announcing annual releases. This includes the Diageo 2020 Special Releases collection, details of which are below. Also hitting shelves soon is the fall 2020 release of Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond Bourbon. We expect more annual releases to be revealed in the coming days so keep your eyes open for those.

We’ve got a lot to cover this week so without further ado, here’s Distiller’s Friday Roundup for September 4, 2020!
