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.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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."
Bourbons have very prominent notes of 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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
