Five & 20 has created a bright and fresh Bourbon aged in small casks to develope a deeper palate.

The Mazza Family has been in the Spirits business in the US Northeast since 1972. The Mazza Vineyard and Mazza Winery have been staples to locals along the New York / Pennsylvania boarder. In 2005 they needed more space and started construction of a new facility along Route 20 in Upstate New York on the shore of Lake Erie, but with an eye to future expansion. The brewery and distillery were outfitted in 2015 — transforming them into a Spirits-making trifecta.

For the experienced Whiskey-lover, the specs of Five & 20 Straight Bourbon Whiskey tell you everything you need to know. It starts with a mash bill of 70% corn, 15% rye, and 15% malted barley. This high corn content tells you that this dram leans to sweeter caramel notes and the relatively high malted barley will have you looking for floral notes on the nose. It’s aged for two years, but in extra small casks so you will expect a Bourbon that’s bright but with the wood contact and resulting vanilla notes of an older Spirit. And it’s 45% ABV, so you know that it will stand up well in your favorite cocktails.

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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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 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 Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
