Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon – Buffalo Trace Distillery
“In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of bourbon history. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the Distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of bourbon. From the time he was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day. During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon – his private reserve – handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives. Introduced in 1984, Blanton’s namesake bourbon was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon sold commercially. The Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.” – Buffalo Trace Distillery

Baker’s 107 – Jim Beam Distillery
“Named after Baker Beam, grandnephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker’s® Bourbon honors the family’s long history and love for distilling.

Baker’s Bourbon is distilled at a lower proof and barreled & aged in small batches, allowing the bourbon to pull more toasted nut, fruit & vanilla flavor from the barrel wood.  Today, Baker’s is still made using this very technique & is aged only in our most select rackhouses for a robust bourbon flavor with a silky, smooth finish.” – Beam Suntory

OCD#5 – Glenn’s Creek Distillery
“OCD #5 is made completely on site from cooking to bottling, and distilled using our custom pot stills. Our maturation process is more labor intensive, but we think it is worth the extra effort. Our aging process is designed to make the flavors as soft as they are pronounced, leading to a smooth and enjoyable experience. This is our most popular bourbon and the staff favorite. We are sure the you will find this to be a bourbon unlike any other!” – Glenns Creek Distillery

Eagle Rare Bourbon – Buffalo Trace
“Eagle Rare Bourbon Whiskey is masterfully crafted and carefully aged for no less than ten years. Every barrel is discriminately selected to offer consistent flavor but with a seemingly individual personality. Eagle Rare is a bourbon that lives up to its name with its lofty, distinctive taste experience.” – Buffalo Trace

We’d love to have you to taste these great bourbons from our great city!
