We think this is another award-winning Bourbon from Breckenridge.

Based high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado at an altitude of 9600 feet, Breckenridge Distillery calls themselves “The World’s Highest Distillery.” And yes, we are pretty sure that the pun is intended. If you took a hard look at their impressive range of nine product offerings and more than two-dozen awards — including winning “Distillery of the Year”… twice — you might think that they have been around a long time. But Bryan Nolt founded the place in 2007. That makes their numerous achievements even more impressive.

Breckenridge has had a Port-finished Bourbon in the line-up for a while. But this is something new, released for the first time in September 2017. As the name implies, Breckenridge PX Sherry Cask Finish is their multi-award-winning Bourbon finished in Pedro Ximenez casks — some of the most sought-after finishing barrels in the entire Whiskey universe. Called “PX” casks among industry insiders, these rare barrels have been rotated off of the Solera aging stack — so they have held some very old and rare Sherry. Like their other finished Bourbons, the primary aging is in new, #3 char American white oak casks for a minimum of three years. Finishing in the PX casks adds four to six months in aging and is famous for bringing notes of fig and creamy raisin.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
To start the distillery, Bryan cashed out his savings, his kid’s college fund, and sold his house. That’s commitment, right? But it’s all worked out just fine.
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.
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.
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 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.
