A true single-barrel release from Breckenridge Distillery with a velvet touch.

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.

The core Bourbons from Breckenridge are all blends based on a high rye mash bill — 56% corn, 38% rye, and 6% barley. And that core Bourbon is aged between two and three years. But as they say at Breckenridge, every once in a while a special barrel presents itself and is set aside for extra aging. Those casks are hand-bottled at a perfect 46% ABV, signed, and stamped with the details and issued as Breckenridge Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey. That means there will be a bit of variance from cask to cask, but that’s part of the joy of it all.

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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of 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.
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.
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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
