The Woodford Reserve Distillery has been distilling on the same site for more than 235 years, making it the oldest Bourbon distillery in Kentucky. Now owned by Brown-Forman—one of America’s largest wine and spirits companies—it has been refitted and set to expand. Since their founding in 1780, the folks at Woodford have been influential in the development and codifying of Bourbon production. In short, they helped invent the spirit as we know and love it today!

To their credit, Brown-Forman are protective of this valuable brand. They are keeping all of the corporate “suits” out of the way and letting the Bourbon-loving employees at Woodford continue to do the Whiskey Voodoo that they do so well. Despite the recent industry boom and new Bourbons appearing all over the place, there are a few premium brands that have been delivering something special forever and a day. Year after year. In the case of Woodford Reserve, that’s century after century. The distillery is still breaking new ground when it comes to crafting truly unique expressions of Whiskey.

Case in point – the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon. A twist on the classic Woodford Reserve proves once again that the distillery is still well set in its trailblazing ways. The Bourbon begins its journey like they normally do, in heavily charred oak barrels, before it’s further matured for nine months in new barrels which have been deeply toasted and lightly charred. That adds an entirely different depth of soft, sweet oak character to the expression. The Bourbon is rich, complex and thoroughly enjoyable.

When it comes to combos of tradition, quality, and originality, it doesn’t get much better than this. If you’re a Bourbon fan, you’ll surely appreciate all the subtle flavor nuances that develop because of the “double oaked” procedure plus the tradition and craftsmanship that come with this prestigious brand. Although this is one of the more expensive Bourbons out there, you’re getting your money’s worth, no doubt about it. Sometimes you got to pay a premium to get what you want. And you want the very best, don’t you?

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
The Woodford Distillery is the oldest distillery in Kentucky still operating today, but not necessarily continuously. It closed during prohibition while a few other managed to get permission to remain open for “medicinal production."
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.
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
