Sometimes Dr. Jekyll, sometimes Mr. Hyde.

Smooth Ambler is the second Spirit producer that references walking and we're sure you won't walk away from this bottle unimpressed. Deep in the Appalachian hills where natural spring waters flow and fresh mountain air... well, floats (?), a team of Whiskey-loving friends established a state-of-the-art distillery. They produce vodka and gin, but also mature hundreds of barrels of Whiskey. When the time of bottling comes, the entire community joins in and everyone signs their own bottle.

The only contradiction found in this Bourbon is in its name, because this Spirit is bound to agree with many. It's a blend of two Whiskeys: a young wheated and an old rye-rich Bourbon. Talk about bridging the intergenerational gap, right?

While these two Spirits had their time to blend and meld, this Whiskey taste like two distinct separate Bourbons at different times, so there could be a bit of a contradiction in there. But it's a badass contradiction; like Jekyll and Hyde.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
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."
The name Smooth Ambler fits the laid-back, easy-going style of the the locals who take their time, but always get where they’re going in style.
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.
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.
