It’s like drinking America in a bottle

1792 Bourbons are a select (sister) brand of Buffalo Trace—one of the most awarded distillers in Kentucky. They in turn are owned by Sazerac—the New Orleans creators of the eponymous Sazerac Bourbon Cocktail and diviners of dozens of classic Bourbons we all enjoy (Thank you Sazerac!).

Why call it 1792? Because that was the year Kentucky became a state of course! And nothing screams Kentucky more than this classic American Whiskey from a classic American company.

By law, Bourbon must be at least 51% Corn mash. The rest can be almost anything, but is usually a combination of barley, wheat, and rye grain spirits. 1792 is a “High Rye Bourbon” which means that, while some Bourbons might have as little as 10% Rye, 1792 has significantly more ... as much as 30%. The exact proportions vary a bit because this is a “barrel select” Bourbon, which means that the Whiskey master is not trying to satisfy a scientific formula or government regulator, he is mixing barrel lots to achieve the perfect taste (as he should!).

1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon Barrel Select is like drinking America in a bottle: Brash and full-bodied ... spicy but balanced. Great to drink neat, but the rich texture and spice make it a perfect  foundation for a Mint Julip, Classic Manhattan, or Sazerac Cocktail. Boom!

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
