Contrary to popular belief, not all bourbon is made in Kentucky but 95% of it is. Bourbon is one of the most heavily regulated (and delicious) substances in America. There is a large amount of regulations defining what constitutes a Bourbon; Charred, virgin Oak Barrels, with a mash bill of a minimum 51% corn, with no added colour or flavour, and made in the land of the free and home of the brave!
What separates Tennessee Whiskey from Bourbon is the use of the “Lincoln County Process”. The Lincoln County Process is a step-in production which uses a vat full of sugar maple charcoal to filter any impurities and mellow out the golden liquid before it reaches its ultimate destination; your tastebuds.
Using the same mash bill as the oldest bottled bourbon (Old Forester), Woodford brings another layer of complexity to bourbon by using copper pot stills which allows unique flavours to develop during the distillation process. Expect notes of toasty caramel, hints of dark chocolate and a touch of nuttiness.
BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY
The single most awarded distillery in the entire world. With over 500 awards under its belt, Buffalo Trace is committed to bringing you only the best possible spirits they can offer. Remaining operational even through prohibition for “medicinal purposes”, Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America
The old pre-prohibition favourite of pioneers all around America. Made to the same high standards and regulations as Bourbon with a minimum of 51% Rye content in the mash and aged in charred virgin oak barrels, expect a spicier, bolder and sometimes fruitier whisky than your typical bourbon.
