American Bourbon Blend redefined
 
‘Oppidan’ is a swanky way of saying ‘townsman’ and according to the philosophy of Oppidan Spirits, modern townsmen create better versions of the existing world each day. It’s about finding the next best thing – or inventing it. Distillation is a pretty old business (at least 4.000 years), but sometimes things need an update. Oppidan’s new American school of distilling is the latest upgrade in the millennia-long evolution. Founded in 2015 by Jeff Walsh, Oppidan takes tradition and enhances it with modern experimentation, coming up with exciting new twists and techniques. Situated not far from Lake Michigan, the Spirit Sorcerers specialize in American Gin and Whiskey, pushing the envelope all the time.
 
The elegant bottle labelled “Smoke + Sea” holds a precious Whiskey created from four-grain Straight Bourbon and Solera-aged Bourbon mash bills. The malty and chocolaty Bourbon inherits its smoky and maritime character from French Oak and barrels that used to hold peated Islay Scotch. It’s a harmonious balance of true American Spirit and mysterious shores of Scotland.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
"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 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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
