An impossible to get Straight Bourbon from Leopold Brothers.
Leopold Bros. was founded by Todd and Scott Leopold in 1999. Todd has degrees in Malting and Brewing and Scott has his degrees in Economics and Industrial Engineering. These two brothers have since done the sensible thing and founded a distillery — first in Michigan, then moving everything back to their home state of Colorado. Their core line-up today is winning lots of awards and consists of Gins, Whiskies, Vodka, Aperitifs, an Absinthe Vert, and a few other tidbits.
OK… this is something that simply cannot get your hands on. You see, a few years ago, Leopold Brothers made a VERY small batch of Straight Bourbon Whiskey, But here’s the deal. It was NEVER sold anywhere but at the distillery. It was a special thing just for them and their on-site customers. But it seems that they have a few cases left and good ‘ol Uncle Flaviar has got ‘em. The mash is 64% corn, 17% malted barley, 16% Abruzzi rye, and 4% “chocolate rye.” the resulting Spirit is aged 33 months in #3 char casks and bottle at a near perfect 45% ABV. And once it’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
