    The distillery’s flagship bourbon has been made using the same process for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of yellow #2 dent corn, plump rye grains and malted barley, which is cooked and cooled before being fermented for approximately 3-5 days. Once fermentation is complete, the bourbon is double-distilled through column stills before being aged in first-fill, American oak barrels (90% of the distillery’s oak is brought in from the Ozark Mountains) that have been aged for six months in the distillery’s yard before being heavily charred.

    After spending at least eight years in these barrels, which are stored on the middle floors of the distillery’s warehouses to encourage the greatest temperature fluctuations, no more than 40 barrels at a time are hand-selected to create one single, small batch of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

    Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey won the Double Gold Medal in the 2014 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition and a Gold Medal in the 2014 International Wine & Spirits Competition.

    The use of wooden barrels to store and transport liquids dates back to 2690 B.C., when ancient Egyptians during the Early Dynastic Period began replacing clay vessels with wooden casks in order to meet the demands of their sprawling civilization. The advantages of wooden barrels were evident — not only were they less fragile than clay vessels, but their cylindrical shape allowed them to be rolled rather than carried across short distances. As settlers along the Nile quickly realized, however, barrels made from wooden staves imparted a unique color and flavor profile to the liquids stored within.

    Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was matured for a minimum of ten years in new, American oak casks under the intense, Kentucky sun. As a result of its decade-long beauty rest, the bourbon has a golden honey color, along with an aroma of gentle toast, fresh tobacco, and bananas. The aroma gives way to notes of chocolate, almonds, melons, raisins and dried fruits on the palate, which are complemented by a subtle vanilla undertone. The finish is long and fierce, with hints of roasted nuts and corn.

    Eagle Rare 10 Year Old earned a score of 96 points from Wine Enthusiast and 95 points from Robert Parker. In addition, the bourbon earned the Gold Medal at the 2013 International Wine and Spirits Competition, where it was named the "Best Bourbon."

    Reviving the lost art of marrying the finest whiskeys, Widow Jane 10 is their signature bourbon. Hand assembled in Brooklyn using the richest & rarest straight bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, only ever in 5 barrel batches, non-chill filtered and proofed with their own mineral water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of New York.

    Smaller than small-batch, Widow Jane’s 10 Year Old was awarded GOLD for ‘Bourbon over 6 years’ at the 2018 Whiskies of the World Awards. Its predecessor was the 10 Year Single Barrel Straight Bourbon, which earned Best in Class Gold Medal at the 2017 Whiskies of the World Awards & Double Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013.

    Widow Jane is all about high-intensity, flavorful and well-aged whiskeys cut with hard, sweet limestone-filtered water that’s known to make great whisk(e)y, from Kentucky to Scotland. Add New York attitude and non-chill filtration to that and you get a whiskey that’s unadulterated and robust in mouthfeel.

    When the Widow Jane team set out to produce their own whiskey they wanted to offer something that was flavor forward, bold and rich with character, but most importantly had a taste of New York. All Widow Jane whiskies are proofed with pure limestone water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of NY, just 100 miles north from their home in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It was limestone from this mine which was used to build the foundation of some of New York’s greatest structures: the gargantuan caissons of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building and the 27,000 ton pedestal to the Statue of Liberty.

    This self-renewing source of water is naturally filtered through limestone and collects in the massive underground caverns. Comprised of an unusually high mineral content that enhances the natural flavors in Widow Jane spirits, this water is their fingerprint and a signature ingredient. And the legend surrounding these mines is what gives Widow Jane whiskey its name.

    The result is some of the finest aged Bourbon you will find, and a tasting experience complete with beautiful aromas, a smooth and creamy mouthfeel and an ultra-long finish.

    Both urban & urbane, Widow Jane is New York’s very own. The signature whiskey of the world’s most magnificent and maddening metropolis.

    On the banks of the Salt River, nestled in the quiet Kentucky countryside near Lawrenceburg, Four Roses Distillery is a testament to American ingenuity and perseverance. Built in 1910 to resemble the architecture of California wineries, the distillery — now listed on the National Register of Historic Places — was one of six distilleries that were granted permission to operate during Prohibition.

    Following Prohibition, Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon became the top-selling bourbon in the United States. In 1943, Seagram's bought the distillery and a decade later, discontinued the sale of Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon. In 2002, the distillery changed hands again, and the new owner brought a renewed sense of purpose and vigor to Four Roses.

    Bottled at a solid at 104 proof, Four Roses Small Batch Select marks the first permanent addition to their portfolio of premium Bourbons since 2006. This extra proof and non-chill filtered Small Batch Select has a richer profile more robust profile than the signature Four Roses. Made from six of the ten: OBSV, OBSK, OBSF, OESV, OESK, OESF, each of the bourbons in this small batch selection are six to seven years old.
