Unique and complex Bourbon bonanza
 
"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.
 
Oppidan’s most famous expression is made from a 5-grain mash of corn, malted rye, chocolate malted rye, Special B, and 2-row barley. The lovely concoction goes through a unique Solera-style maturing process, which the founder of Oppidan says is way too rare nowadays. The Spirit matures in three different wood types: American Oak, French Oak, and Oloroso Sherry barrels – inheriting all the beautiful flavors and aromas in the process. Since the French Oak and Oloroso casks are never emptied, the richness and complexity increases through time.

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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
