Super Leopold Bros deliver.
 
In 1999, Scott and Todd  Leopold opened a brewery in Ann Arbor, Michigan, called Leopold Bros. -- however, they soon expanded to distilling and released their first spirits in 2001. In 2008, operations moved to Scott and Todd's home state of Colorado, which is also where they get their first-class grain from. 
 
The distillery has been well-known for its eco-brewing techniques, using organic ingredients and effective management of water and waste byproducts. And you can imagine that combining such awareness and responsibility with pre-prohibition standards makes for one hell of a Whisky.
 
The brothers use many techniques from the Whiskey-making traditions that predate prohibition. The traditional sour mash of corn and rye (there’s as much corn here as you would find in Bourbon) is fermented at colder temperatures but without refrigeration -- this way the Whiskey develops a softer flavor. The Whiskey is then distilled in a small batch copper potstill, and barreled at the Pre-Prohibition standard of 98 proof. To cap things off,  each bottle is individually numbered as it is filled directly from the barrel. The Leopold Bros. Whiskey is aged for less than two years, so if you like your spirits light on oak, this one should be a nice fit, neat or in cocktails.

Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
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.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
