A smooth sipper, based on the famed, pre-Prohibition "43" recipe.

Long before certain folks believed the Prohibition would be a great idea, a grocer by the name of David Nicholson began distilling his original famed "43" Bourbon recipe in the private backroom of his St. Louis general store on North 6th Street. This was in 1843 and while his original recipe is no longer produced in that same backroom, his legacy was passed down for generations, starting with his son. Today, it lives on at Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, Kentucky, the birthplace of Bourbon, and while the generations may have changed, the bloodline remained the same. Bet he couldn’t have predicted all of this when he’d spend all that time in his backroom.

1843 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey follows the very same recipe David Nicholson used in his back room almost two centuries ago. Still possessing the same outstanding character and quality, this damn fine Bourbon is bottled at 100 proof and aged in new charred oak barrels. Featuring a wheated mashbill, it is an exceptionally smooth sipper with woody and smoky tones, exactly how we like ‘em. You’ll love it on its own with just a cube or two or to elevate your Old Fashioned and Whiskey Sour.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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 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 must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
"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."
