About Breckenridge Reserve Blend Whiskey
Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge Distillery makes one of the best bourbons in the world. The distillery, which is only 4,000 square feet itself, is situated 9,600 feet above sea level, making it the highest distillery in the world. There, Jordan Via — Breckenridge's master distiller — ferments a mash of 56% corn, 38% rye and 6% malted barley in an open-top Scottish fermenter before distilling it twice through a $140,000, 550-gallon, Vendome copper-pot still originally made in Kentucky.
With a profound range of expressions ranging from award winning bourbons and Port cask finished whiskeys to Chili flavored vodkas, and over two dozen awards, including 2 “Distillery of the Year” awards, Breckenridge is without saying a well-established player in the game. This is very impressive considering Bryan Nolt founded Breckenridge in 2007.
Breckenridge Reserve Blend is a release from the reserve blend program, created to showcase qualities of their bourbons that even the most “discerning connoisseurs can appreciate.” The spirit consists of four distinct blends, giving great insight into the beauty of the bourbon while it ages, and the affects of charring that are subsequently expressed. “Still soft and luscious, these blends capture a different take on the way bourbon can grow up and present itself at maturity.”

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
