A small batch, organic, and handcrafted Bourbon that's born in Kentucky and bottled in Ohio.
Founded in 2014 by Kevin and Ann Thomas in Lakewood, Ohio, Western Reserve Distillers is one of those family-owned, organic, and handcrafted distilleries that never take any shortcuts. Does that mean more work? Obviously, but it’s totally worth it. Not only they produce delicious award-winning Vodkas, Gins, Bourbons, and Whiskeys – all handcrafted in small batches from 100% organic ingredients, mind you – but they also care a lot about the environment. Using hot water from distillation for heating the distillery, they’re fans of keeping their carbon footprint down low. All grains come from Ohio farms close to the distillery and the mash waste is even sent back to the farms to feed their livestock. It’s the full circle!
Each barrel of Western Reserve Small Batch No. 7 Bourbon is hand selected by the family – and given their attention to detail, it’s a safe guess that they take their sweet time. They never select more than 4 barrels of 4-6 year-old Whiskeys at once for blending them with older barrels of 14-year-old Whiskey. This results in the elegant and sophisticated flavor profile and once you throw in their signature "high rye" recipe that’s 21% rye, what you get is a sumptuous Kentucky Straight Bourbon, packed with flavors of cinnamon, white pepper, and bold spice. Twice distilled and bottled at a pleasant 94 proof, we'd say this is a must for all Bourbon aficionados out there.
