A high-corn, blended Bourbon with powerful, fruit-forward palate worth discovering for yourself.

Bardstown Bourbon Company is an amazing thing to behold. It is a remarkable facility recently expanded to produce six million proof gallons of Spirit per year — making it one of the largest distilleries in the world. But it is also a gleaming, modern building with sharp edges, having some of the most advanced technology for great Whisky-making.

Founded in 2013 with production hitting full stride in 2015, they started by filling their rickhouses with sourced Spirits to support their construction. With massive amounts of product sold out into the future, they are the central production for dozens of famous brands — including Jefferson’s, High West, James E. Pepper, and many more. But they carve out a selection to release under their own brand as well.

Bardstown Bourbon Company will be a significant force in the industry for generations to come.

Bardstown Bourbon "Discovery Series" #1 is a very limited release. The team at Bardstown blind-tasted more than thirty combinations to arrive at this particular blend of four premium Bourbons. Heck, 90% of the Spirits is at least a decade old, and all of them are high-corn with a minimum of 75%. It is one of the best blends on the market this year. And it’s bottled at nearly a cask strength of 60.6% ABV. This little gem has power and flavor to spare.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
