A crisp and satisfying Straight Bourbon with a wheated mash bill that brings on the smooth.

St. Augustine Distillery Co. was founded in 2013 by Philip McDaniel and Mike Diaz as a second chapter to their lives — Philip was a city councilman and Mike an investor. They assemble a group of investors who believed in their vision and purchased the century-old FP&L Ice Plant building to house their fledgling distillery. They brought in Dave Pickerell (Maker’s Mark & WhistlePig) to set things up right. And the formula worked because the business is thriving and they have a slew of Gold Medals decorating the facility.

St. Augustine Florida Straight Bourbon is crafted in batches of sixteen to forty barrels. The mash bill is 60% Florida corn, 22% barley, and 18% Florida wheat. The entire production process takes place on-site at their distillery. Each cask is aged a minimum of three years and the batch is married and brought to proof — which in this case means 44% ABV without chill-filtering. Being a wheated dram, the emphasis is on smoothness. And the relatively high barley content means additional floral notes on the nose. It is a great daily dram.

Smartass Corner:
St. Augustine, Florida, has a claim to being the oldest, continuously inhabited European-style city in North America. It was founded by Spanish admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés — Florida’s first governor. His ships saw land on August 28, 1565 (feast day of Saint Augustine). If you count the Caribbean, Santo Domingo (1496) and San Juan (1521) are older.

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 was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
"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 have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
