Woodford returns with their signature Bourbon in an annual Kentucky Derby limited edition bottle.

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.

The Kentucky Derby is the biggest event in The Bourbon State each year. So, it’s not surprising that Woodford pulls out all the stops with their commemorative editions. Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 146 Limited Edition starts with their famous mash bill — 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. And all Woodford Bourbons are aged in new, #4 charred American white oak. The Whiskey is the classic, sweet Woodford dram we all love delivered in a limited edition, one-liter commemorative bottle featuring art by noted sports painter Richard Sullivan.

Smartass corner:
Woodford began the special Derby edition bottle program in 1999, making this the 21st release. They have become hot collector’s items — full and empty — and each release sells out quickly.

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."
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.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
