Character Goatson
A high-ryed brother of the famed "43" Bourbon.

Long before certain folks wanted to try out a "great idea" a.k.a. the Prohibition, 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.

Like its iconic "43" brother, David Nicholson Reserve Bourbon Whiskey is a result of a carefully guarded and unaltered tradition that you’d expect from the David Nicholson brand. This extra-aged ryed Bourbon expression features a high-rye mashbill, delivering full-bodied flavor and a distinct, spicy taste. This one is truly a mouthful with woody tones and smooth hints of caramel, which convinced even the most demanding critics and brought home Double Gold Medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Great to sip on its own, enjoy in a hot toddy on a cold night, or even try it with some mint leaves in a mint julep.

Character Dogson
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 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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
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.
