About Three Chord Twelve Bar Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Three Chord Blended Bourbon Whiskey is "inspired by music, enhanced by technology." It's the brainchild of acclaimed musician, songwriter, and producer Neil Giraldo and his Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Steel Bending Spirits company. Giraldo has long admired the vibration that is the source of music. "I also saw how drinks resting on our guitar amplifiers would vibrate and wondered if the implementation of sound and vibrations could also be used to alter and enhance the structure of a seasoned spirit," says Giraldo. "I wanted to take that same philosophy and apply it to making bourbon."
Three Chord sources their whiskey from Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Indiana. Whiskey maker Ari Sussman has worked with 15 distilleries, winning several awards in the process. Now he carefully watches over the blending process, bringing together some of the finest bourbons and ryes of varying ages. The assembled blend goes into casks, treated with their proprietary pyrolisis barrel-toasting process. A number of different casks of varying char levels are used ― these include French and American oak, as well as uncharred barrels from Cognac and Spain. Each small batch is thoroughly inspected by a sensory panel before the spirit is bottled in Chelsea, Michigan.
Three Chord Twelve Bar Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey features a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley. Aged 12 years, the expression pays tribute to the 12-bar blues, the chord progression that is at the core of some of the greatest music produced. The structure, tone, and character are unique to each artist, making each interpretation unique. The chewy, complex, and oaky expression is bottled at 107 proof, only 600 bottles at a time.
