A powerful statement Bourbon from Traverse City Whiskey Co. with the flavors of pecan pie.
 
Not surprisingly, Traverse City Whiskey Co. is located in Traverse City — a small hamlet in northern Michigan. If they were any further north they’d be in Canada, which is why they call their little shop the "Whiskey of the North." Chris Fredrickson founded Traverse City Whiskey Co. with his partners — Jared Rapp and Moti Goldring — in 2012. Like many new Spirits companies, they sourced their spirit for the first few years while they got the stills up and running and the Whiskey in the barrels for aging. But things are going well and they are using their own spirits these days to craft a remarkably wide range of Whiskeys.
 
Traverse City Barrel Proof Bourbon is just what it sounds like — their signature XXX Straight Bourbon bottled in single barrel lots at cask strength. Each cask used is hand selected and placed delicately into the bottles uncut and au’natural. That’s why the ABV varies from 57.5% ABV to 60% ABV. The mach bill is simple — corn, rye, and malted barley. But the craftsmanship, flavor, and power are straight-up tasty.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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."
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.
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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
