The Bourbon that’s been making history for more than two-hundred years.

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery 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 the beginning, 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. 

We do not have enough room here to list all the awards and accolades. People just LOVE Woodford Reserve Bourbon. We do too. But let’s be perfectly clear… there are definitely some higher end Bourbons out there. Heck, Woodford has a few top-end offerings that are wonderful. But when it comes to that magic combination of producing a high-quality Whiskey that consistently tastes great, has superior mouth-feel and texture, smells like the tears of angels, AND is affordable to most folks as a daily dram… Woodford Reserve is hard to beat.

Smartass Corner:
Woodford Reserve Distillery is named after the county where it’s located. But two-hundred odd years ago, founder Elijah Pepper named the distillery after his son, calling it the Oscar Pepper Distillery.

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.
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.
Woodford is the “Official Bourbon” and its sister brand Old Forrester, is the part of the “Official Mint Julip Cocktail,” during the famous Kentucky Derby horse race at Churchill Downs racetrack.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
"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."
