This one's for the fans of Bourbon and oranges.

Yes, bearcat is a real word. It's a nickname for the binturong, a lovable Asian mammal that's known to show its claws when it feels threatened. But the term was used in the Roaring Twenties to describe a fiery-spirited woman as well. Bearcat Bourbon was named in honor of all the women ― and there were plenty, contrary to popular belief ― that played an instrumental part in writing the history of American Whiskey, either as distillers, bootleggers, or innovators.

There are two infused Bourbons in Bearcat's lineup right now: an Orange and an Espresso variant. The juice that both these expressions are based on is a Whiskey from the O.Z. Tyler Distillery ― a Bourbon with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley. Guess what the Orange Peel & Spice Bourbon gets infused with? It's freshly-grated orange zest and spices, of course ― and all-natural at that. It's a proper 80-proof Spirit as well, bursting with zestiness and bitter-sweetness that are just as tasty on their own as they are on the rocks and in cocktails.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
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.
