About Old Carter American Whiskey Batch 3
Founded by husband and wife Mark and Sherri Carter, Old Carter Whiskey Co. is focused on bringing super high-quality and unique small-batch straight rye and bourbon whiskeys to discerning drinkers. The couple started in the wine business, producing fine wine in the Napa Valley. The Carter Cellars Cabernets have garnered numerous awards and has led them towards whiskey.
Their whiskey journey started when they joined a friend from Kentucky in resurrecting the long-absent Kentucky Owl bourbon brand. By the time the brand was sold in 2017, the couple had grown too fond of the spirit to simply let go, diving straight into sourcing, producing, and blending whiskey in Kentucky. It's a true hands-on family operation that enables them to cultivate their passionate love for whiskey and share it with the world.
Old Carter Straight American Whiskey Batch 3 is their largest small batch to date. It's a 12-year-old blend of 13 barrels. "Mark and I are always in pursuit of a certain balance when it comes to flavor profile; I love aromatics and complexity, he loves power and depth. We feel that this American Whiskey delivers on all of those levels," says co-founder Sherri Carter. Bottled at barrel strength, it's a 138.1-proof whiskey that is limited to 2487 bottles.

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.
