Phenomenal Bourbon made perfect in Cognac casks.

The history of this Bourbon goes way back to the 19th century when a family from northern Germany moved to Tennessee and started selling grocery and Whiskey. Their Spirit was so good they decided to focus on Whiskey and were the first distillery to produce Belle Meade Straight Bourbon Whiskey. As these stories usually go, they had to close the shop during the Prohibition, but today, the sixth generation made sure the delicious Bourbon is back stronger than ever. XO Cognac finished Bourbon is one of their six wonderful Spirits and it's as glamorous as it is breathtaking.

The magic begins with picking the perfect casks and in this case, they're made of French Limousin Oak that used to hold the world's finest Champagne XO Cognacs for dozen years. Then, the magicians fill those casks with a blend of Bourbons aged between six and nine years and wait for the casks to do their thing. This blend of Bourbons, high in rye content and non-chill filtered, won a Gold medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2017. And with a good reason.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
"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."
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.
