One sip and you will be ready to start a little rebellion of your own.

Opici Wines has been around since 1913 — that’s more than one hundred years of family ownership, operation, and expertise. There was a brief interruption during the dark days of Prohibition, but aside from that little hiccup things have gone very well indeed. The have transformed their operation over the years from being an importer and private bottler of Wines from around the world to an owner of 50 brands of Wines and Spirits who were recently named “Importer of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast magazine.

Being based in the United States, as the Opici Family expanded into spirits it made a lot of sense to add a classic American Whiskey to their Market Street Spirits line. Thus, Rebellion Bourbon was born. Rebellion Bourbon is distilled and aged in the heart of the Bourbon universe — Bardstown, Kentucky. It is a high-corn Bourbon at between 70% and 72% depending on the batch. It is aged eight years in new American oak and bottled at a proper 47% ABV, so you get a heathy dose of flavor and punch that will stand up to your favorite cocktails.

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 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.
"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."
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
