Calumet Bourbon extends their line of winning Single Rack Whiskies with a fifteen year-old stallion of a dram.
Western Spirits Beverage Company is a bit of an upstart in the world of Bourbon and American Whiskey. Founded in 2008 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, they focus on a vision to build unique, innovative spirit brands. And we’re lucky they did. They’ve developed a tidy range of Bourbons and Whiskey brands to fit every palate and price point — including Calumet, Lexington Bird Dog, and Sam Houston — in partnership with Bardstown Bourbon.
The Calumet brand is named after a famous Thoroughbred Horse Farm in Kentucky — Calumet Farm. Their “Single Rack” line is the top-level offering. It’s bigger than a Single Barrel release, but more selective than a Reserve. It’s different because each release is culled from a single rack in a single rickhouse.
Calumet Farm 15 Year Old Single Rack Black was distilled in 2006 with a mash bill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley. This winning dram was aged for fifteen glorious years on a single rack in Bardstown, Kentucky, and is bottled at 52.5% ABV without chill-filtering or additives — as it should be.
Founded in 1924, Calumet Farm is a 762 acre facility in the heart of the Bluegrass State that breeds and trains Thoroughbred racehorses. The farm has produced more Kentucky Derby winning horses than any other breeder — and two of those went on to with the Triple Crown.
