A delicious high-rye Bourbon finished in French Armagnac casks for a uniquely rich, five year-old dram.

Pia Carusone and Rachel Gardner had a dream of starting a distillery. In 2015 — after being turned-away by conventional bank financing — they did what any founder in the internet age would do. They launched a crowd-funding campaign online and raised $120,000. Now they are the owners of Republic Restoratives in Washington DC where this woman-owned establishment distills and serves fine Spirits. Like many distilling startups, they are using house distillates in their clear Spirits brands and sourcing aged Whiskeys while their own stuff continues to age.

Borough Bourbon is an interesting combination of sourcing and in-house craft. Each batch in this limited release begins with sourced Spirits that are finished in exotic casks in house. For Borough Bourbon Batch 3 they took five year-old high-rye Kentucky Bourbon and finished it in casks that previously held ancient, fifty year-old French Armagnac. The combination is not a common one and emphasizes the rye spices with an undertone of leather and honey. The 44% ABV helps keep it lively in the mouth.

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.
"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 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.
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.
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.
