Always bet on the best horse – sorry, Bourbon.

The Woodford Reserve Distillery (people born in the 1800s probably knew it as the Old Oscar Pepper Distillery) was established back in 1812 - which means it's older than lawn mowers or sewing machines. Now it belongs to the Kentucky-based behemoth Brown-Forman, and one of the numerous Spirits they produce is the eponymous Woodford Reserve, a top-class small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, introduced to our palates in 1996. The distillery boasts with ancient copper pot stills and a century-old cypress wood fermenters. They also have one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, which gives the Spirits its legendary color and flavor.

Woodford Double Oaked Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a one-of-a-kind Spirit. It starts as the classic Woodford Reserve, but then, they put it in oak barrels that are heavily toasted and lightly charred. The second barrel makes sure the Bourbon comes out opulent, mouth-watering and extra oaky. This very expression was bottled for Flaviar members and only 240 bottles were made. Rumor has it this is the Spirit that converted scores of people into Bourbon-heads. We totally get 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.
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 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 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.
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.
