This one is no stranger to Gold medals...

You know how it goes. You go to paint the town red with your friends and then somebody says: “We should totally open a bar.” Or, in this case, a distillery. In 2009, Alex Toomy started distilling moonshine on his farm. In 2010, he opened the Ragged Branch Distillery with his friends Chris Sarpy and Russell Nance. It wasn’t long before the late legendary Master Distiller Dave Pickerell joined them and developed the mash. All Ragged Branch Whiskey is distilled on-site from their own grain. The milling and mashing happen daily based on the methods, entrusted to them by the late Pickerell. The distillation takes place in a custom-built 500-gallon Vendome still. It’s all farm-to-bottle, combined with modern processes and that makes Ragged Branch the award-winning independent distiller we adore so much.

Ragged Branch Double Oaked Wheated Bourbon Whiskey is first aged to a proper Straight Bourbon before it’s moved to a new charred oak barrel. There, it’s aged some more until the all flavors are truly deep and smooth. This means you’re in for a wave of heavy malt, vanilla, dark caramel, and toasted pecans that finish up sweet and buttery with a touch of almond. This is the Gold medal winner at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Savor it slowly, preferably with a few drops of water to really open it up.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak 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.
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.
"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."
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.
