A fitting tribute to The Colonel’s time as a grain trader Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., often referred to as 'The Colonel' was a man of many hats.

He was related to the 12th U.S. president, played a vital part in the passing of the Bottled-in-Bond law, as well as owning several distilleries (and, since we mentioned them, a cool collection of top hats). An all-around gentlemanly gent, no doubt! And if you’re going to name something after one of the fathers of modern Bourbon, it better deliver. Today, the line of Taylor Bourbons are owned by the Sazerac Company and distilled in their famous Buffalo Trace facility. Make no mistake, this is one of their premium brands and they made sure to do right by the Colonel.

This limited edition 'gimmick' Four Grain Bourbon is based on a mash bill of corn, rye, wheat and malted barley. It's inspired by the Colonel's time during the Civil War when he worked as a grain trader. During that time he learned lots of stuff. Especially that grains need to come from the same farmers and harvest in order to maintain consistency and superior quality. That's why we bet he'd be extra proud of this Bourbon, especially after its 12 years of aging. And since this one is Bottled-in-Bond, meaning that the liquor comes from a single distillation season, one distiller and one distillery. Just what the Colonel fought for.

The Buffalo Trace Distillery was one of the few production facilities that was allowed to remain in operation during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes."
"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."

J.B.'s father, Joseph W. Dant, invented a still made from a poplar log at 16, as he couldn't afford a copper still. Although crude, it worked exceptionally well!

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.

Limestone Branch Distillery, which produces Yellowstone Bourbon, also makes Minor Case Bourbon and Bowling & Burch Gin.

Pinhooking means purchasing and rearing a foal based on its pedigree and either selling it or turning it into a champ racing horse. The same idea is behind Pinhook Bourbon: they source young Whiskey to mature and blend it into a blue-ribbon sipping Bourbon.
