Literally everything you love about Woodford Reserve Bourbon, only at full barrel-proof strength.

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery site for over 230 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.

If you stop into a strange bar in a strange land, the distinctive Woodford Reserve bottle behind the bar is a welcome sight — assuring that your cocktail will be made well. For many of us, Woodford Reserve Bourbon is the baseline from which all premium Bourbons are judged. Master's Collection Batch Proof 2018 Release is a strictly limited edition of select barrels following the exact same mash bill and process as their core Whiskey, but it’s delivered at a blistering full proof strength — 62.9% ABV — yielding an explosion of richness and flavor.

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.
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.
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 was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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.
