An eight year-old edition of the classic George Dickel Bourbon

George Dickel immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1844 where he started a small retail business. Within a few years he started buying regional Whiskies wholesale and reselling them to bars and restaurants. In 1888, Dickel’s company bought out one of his suppliers — the Cascade Hollow Distillery. The dark days of Prohibition forced them to close things down. When prohibition ended, the distillery was sold and the Bourbon renamed in honor of their founder. In 1956, the company returned to Tennessee, rebuilt the distillery, and adopted the Lincoln County process to become an official Tennessee Whisky. Today, the brand and distillery are owned by Diageo.

Did you know that June 14th is — and shall continue to be — National Bourbon Day in America? Here at Team Flaviar it’s an official holiday celebrated with donuts, songs, and much celebration into the wee hours of the evening. And this year to celebrate this most auspicious occasion, George Dickel announced the release of a new eight year-old edition of their signature Bourbon loveliness.

Like the rest of the core lineup, George Dickel 8 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey has their signature high-corn mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley. And yes, this Midwestern jungle juice was aged in new, charred white oak for a minimum of eight years before being bottled at a nearly perfect 45% ABV.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
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.
