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.

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.
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."
The Buffalo Trace Distillery was one of the few production facilities that was allowed to remain in operation during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
