Straight Bourbon celebrating the art of cooperage.

In 1945, the famous Brown-Forman bought the Wood Mosaic Company on Maclean Avenue in Louisville, KY, and turned it into Bluegrass Cooperage. The master coopers have been crafting premium barrels ever since, and the Coopers' Craft brand was created to celebrate fine art and craftsmanship. They are still the only major distiller to own a new barrel cooperage, building their own barrels. That means total control of Whiskey-making, from "bark to barrel to Bourbon," as their slogan says.

 

Cooper's Craft Barrel Reserve Whiskey came to life from their chiseled and charred American white oak barrels. This is a bolder and more complex Kentucky Bourbon, packed with flavors of caramel, cotton candy, apple, pear, citrus, vanilla, and sharp cinnamon. It weighs in at a more than respectable 100 proof. We recommend sipping this Bourbon beauty neat or in a classic cocktail like a Sazerac or Whiskey Sour.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
