About Wattie Boone & Sons 8 Year Old Small Batch American Whiskey
Historians say that pioneer distiller Wattie Boone was the first documented person to produce bourbon in Kentucky in 1776. He erected the first distillery in Knob Creek, even employing the son of Abraham Lincoln ― according to local legend. Boone is one of a handful of persons most likely to have invented bourbon. He crafted his spirit along the Beechfork, where Preservation Distillery stands.
Preservation Distillery stands among the rolling hills of Kentucky Bluegrass Country. The farmhouse distillery sits on 40 acres of land, its bourbon roots dating back 7 decades, when they started trading old-world bourbon. More recently, they built their own micro-batch distilling facility. The whiskey is pot-distilled in small 1-3 barrel batches and is home to Wattie Boone & Sons, Very Olde St. Nick, and Cowboy Little Barrel brands.
Wattie Boone & Sons pays tribute to the pioneering distiller in the form of a single-barrel whiskey that is made in Tennessee and aged in Kentucky for 7 years before being bottled at 94.7 proof. You can expect notes of caramel, corn, citrus zest, oak, and a nice balance of sweetness and spice.

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.
