Named after the 10th Mountain Division -- soldiers trained in the mountains of the western United States to prepare them for the climates of the Alps during WWII -- 10th Mountain Bourbon is the result of a kickstarter campaign to bring a distillery to the ski town of Vail, Colorado. Their bourbon is aged 6 months and made from Colorado grains.
Bourbon insiders have long acknowledged that full proof bourbon has a distinctively rich flavor. This bourbon underwent a distinct filtering process, forgoing the typical chill filtration, and only passing through a plate and frame filter. This allowed the bourbon to maintain a robust proof for bottling, as well as a full rich and bold flavor. Bottled at its original 125 barrel entry proof, just as it was years ago when the barrels were first filled, 1792 Full Proof Bourbon is exceptionally distinct.
1792 is the year that Kentucky became a State, and the bottling of this special Bourbon commemorates that date. Aged for eight years, this Bourbon has aromas of corn, caramel and shortbread. Classic balance of spice and oak leads to a long dry finish.
Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award-winning spirit. We guide each batch’s conditioning, blending our handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. It’s typically aged for up to 6 years. While we lose about 5% of the spirit each year to evaporation, or “the Angel’s Share,” what’s left behind after we’re done is truly worthy of envy. Once it’s deemed ready, we finish our bourbon in ruby port wine casks, which adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the whiskey without challenging it. Our port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste. We use 60-gallon ruby port barrels made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal. This creates a whiskey of unprecedented smoothness, sweetness and balance.
Named after Baker Beam, grand nephew of the legendary Jim Beam. This barrel strength bourbon is aged for 7 years to create the perfect balance of subtle vanilla, spice, and caramel flavors. A nice bourbon showcasing sweet and heat.
