Bang-for-the-buck goodness!

Berkshire Mountain Distillers may sound like a solidly English company, but they definitely are not. Situated in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, they produce many different spirits, including Whiskey, Rum, Gin and Vodka. Established in 2007, they are well on the way to becoming a very big name in the American Whisky business. This is the first legal distillery to exist in this area since prohibition. The company pride themselves on their artisanal title as well as their support of local agriculture and business.

Berkshire Bourbon is a young Whiskey made from corn sourced only two miles away from the distillery. It is aged in new fill American Oak casks and carries the sweetness of the wood from nose to finish. The body of this Whiskey is dense but rather fresh, with a burst of fruit and caramel. If you’re looking for a good bang for your buck Whiskey, then this is it. The linger is good and long, with that thick density coming through in the rich flavors that just keep holding on. The overriding taste on the palate is again, that thick caramel sweetness, but mixed with the malty corn and spices, there is a lot more to this Bourbon.

"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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
