Bourbon Whiskey

The list that follows is a love letter to American whiskey. Now it isn’t nice to brag, but it’s a long walk from our front door to the nearest collection like this, so you should probably have one for the road. But which one? Our second favorite thing to do with whiskey is share it, so whether you’re after a trusted favorite, something new and daring, or a pour that is rare and sublime, we can help. About that last type of pour—the kind that’s so good it turns fine upstanding folks into whiskey-crazed fanatics like us (if you’ve ever crossed state lines just for a bottle, you know what we mean). This list often includes bottles we may never see again, and many we don’t see as often as we’d like. So if we’ve recently polished off the one you’ve been hunting for, we feel your pain, and we’ve got something for it. (It’s whiskey.)

Bourbon & Rye

Bourbon whiskey must be produced in the U.S. and distilled from mash containing at least 51% corn then aged in new charred American oak barrels. To be designated “straight” it must age for a minimum of 2 years and contain no additives or coloring. We offer only straight whiskey. Rye Whiskey can be called the first true American whiskey; distilled from 51% or more rye mash, though other grains can be added and aged in new charred American oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years.
