Made by Bourbon lovers for Bourbon lovers.
In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of Bourbon. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the Distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of Bourbon. Today, Blanton’s is a division of Sazerac Company — one of the largest privately held liquor companies in the world. They distill it in their Buffalo Trace Distillery, but make no mistake, Blanton’s is a unique, stand-alone brand with a focus on nothing but greatness.
Blanton's Straight from the Barrel is something special. Just look at the bottle! Have you ever seen such a unique shape in an American Whiskey? And the cast metal stopper of a Kentucky Thoroughbred horse just adds to the mystique (not to mention giving you an opportunity to finally start collecting something again!).
And we're only just beginning to talk about what's inside the bottle: Starting with the unique mash bill of corn, rye for spice, and malted barley. They age it in white oak and pour it straight into the bottle uncut and unfiltered. Since it’s single cask strength, this means that the ABV could be anywhere from 62% to 67%. Enough talk. If you love great Bourbon, you are going to love Blanton's Straight from the Barrel.
