Ambler Spirits brings back their #1 selling Bourbon after a five-year drought.

John Little of Smooth Ambler Spirits set out with his father-in-law to make something his adopted state of West Virginia would be proud of. In 2009 that dream became a reality when they opened up their distillery in the tiny town of Maxwellton — which sits in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains. They have a single, small batch still. But sales have done well and they are up to approximately 80 barrels per month produced across two shifts. In-house they produce two Whiskies, two Gins, a Rum, and a Vodka. The company was purchased by Pernod Ricard a few years ago, but John Little still runs the show.

Smooth Ambler Old Scout was a HUGE hit. But back when it started, Smooth Ambler was buying barrels of aged Spirit from MGP to supplement its inventory. Problem is, they didn’t buy enough, so they ran out of their most popular product. Fortunately they started laying down barrels of new-make Spirit at the same time, and those barrels are now fully aged for five years and ready to bring this winner back. Smooth Ambler Old Scout Straight Bourbon Whiskey is 49.5% ABV of tastiness without chill-filtration. The mash bill in 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley, and 100% ready for prime time sipping.

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 matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
