Straight Kentucky Bourbon in its purest form.

Woodford Reserve Distillery
is just one of those historic sites that has had its destiny written in the stars. Not to be cheesy, but fine Bourbon was first made at the Kentucky distillery in 1812! With a history like that, you probably won't be making Beer there. Today, one of the oldest and smallest Bourbon distilleries in Kentucky gets with the times – they craft their own barrels, they even have their own cooperage, plus they care about the environment as more than 98% of waste material gets recycled while 10 acres of land are dedicated to native grass restoration!

Every year, the wizards at Woodford Reserve a.k.a. Master Distillers Chris Morris and Elizabeth McCall release a limited-edition batch proof expression. In 2021, the dram was bottled in a new design at 128.3 proof. Wowza! The mash bill and process are the same as for their Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, which essentially means you get to experience their flagship offering at its purest form. At such high proof, the depth of that signature Woodford flavor is, well, just beyond. Expect a palate with rich raisin and brown sugar notes galore but it never gets to be too much as it's immediately balanced by spicy leather, rich oak, and cedar wood notes. We believe everyone should experience Bourbon in its purest form at least once and this expression is IT.

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.
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.
"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."
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
