Breckenridge finishes their famous Bourbon in casks used to infuse their Rum with natural spices, amplifying the flavor profile.

Based high in 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.

This story starts with Breckenridge’s popular Bourbon. The high-rye Spirit is aged for a minimum of three years in new American oak barrels and a natural flavor profile of butterscotch, cocoa, orange zest, and crisp apples. Part two of the story is the release of their Breckenridge Spiced Rum — made from turbinado sugar and molasses, aged in house Bourbon casks, and finished with a range of natural fruits and spices added to the casks. Well, some of that Rum and spice works its way into the wood. Breckenridge Rum Cask Finish Bourbon happens when their Bourbon is put back into those Rum casks, amplifying the flavor profile. That’s 45% ABV of awesome.

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.
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.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
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.
