Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Gold Medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2014
Clean, brilliant honey amber in color, this whiskey is heavy with rich dried fruit, as well as hints of mint and oranges covered with a dusting of cocoa and faint vanilla and tobacco spice. It is rich, chewy, rounded and smooth on the palate, with complex citrus, cinnamon and cocoa. Silky smooth, almost creamy on the finish.
Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits our historic Woodford Reserve Distillery.
One of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries, the present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same hallowed grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods, which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation.
The Distillery is home to a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, our iconic copper pot stills, and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. We also boast one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, ensuring every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor.
Woodford Reserve invites you to come visit, enjoy their bourbon, take in their scenery, and embrace their history.
Although Bourbon may be produced anywhere in the United States, it is most commonly associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, where it has been produced since the late 18th century. Made from a mash bill containing at least 51% corn, the Bourbon Whiskey distillate must be aged in new, charred white oak barrels. Bourbon Whiskeys are bottled at eighty proof (40% abv) or higher and cannot contain any added color or flavor. A versatile spirit that can be sipped neat, with water or on the rocks, it also performs nicely added to cocktails like the Old Fashioned.
