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.
Whiskey Sister Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is a bourbon handcrafted in the heart of Kentucky and matured in American oak casks. Following maturation, the bourbon is charcoal filtered. As a result, it has a heady aroma, with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark plums. Notes of oak tannins, butterscotch, caramel and burnt sugar dominate the palate, and lead to a finish touched by hints of citrus and berries.
The bourbon earned the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014. Pick up a bottle today!
