A rich, smoky Bourbon from Minnesota that’s double barrel aged.
 
Heather Manley founded Crooked Water Spirits in 2013 up in Minnesota. The first product came in the form of a half-dozen barrels of their King’s Point Bourbon that sold out in just a few days, and the product line has quickly expanded to two Gins, two Vodkas, three Bourbons, a bottle Old Fashioned Cocktail, and an Apple Brandy — all of them award-winners. And we love the honest and up-front marketing — they proudly use local ingredients and Yahara Bay Distillery in Madison, WI.
 
Crooked Water Old Hell Roaring is “Double Barreled.” That can mean a lot of things, but in this case it means that the Whiskey is aged in two different kinds of barrels — distinguished by the amount and technique of toasting and charing. The technique delivers a complexity into the flavor profile. In this case, Heather is going for a warm, smoky profile with deep toasting and a light char on the secondary casks. And Old Hell Roaring is a Straight Bourbon bottled at a nearly perfect 45% ABV. Making is a solid sipper and cocktail base.

"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.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
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 matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
