Inside Warehouse H, the secret sweet spot where the first single barrel Bourbon, Blanton's Private Reserve, was born, some of the best and most sublime Bourbons are still made to this day.

One special one of them is Blanton's Takara Gold Edition. Distributed exclusively in Japan by Takara, this is one of the most sought-after and limited expressions on the market. Japanese know their Whisky, so they wanted something a bit extra from Blanton's. And Blanton's gave them a Bourbon that is aged for at least 8 years which is two years more than the requirement for the standard Gold variety. The resulting Spirit is a smooth and exceptionally complex offering that's bottled at 103 proof (51.5% ABV) and presented in a luxurious gold box, equipped with dark red wax surrounding the stopper, separating it from the standard gold versions.

*This bottle is a collector’s item; we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

**Individual orders are limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

***Any kind of transit damage is insured and will be reimbursed.

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.
"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 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.
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.
