Woodford Reserve Distillery was founded in 1838 by Reverend Elijah Craig and is the oldest Kentucky bourbon distillery still in operation today. Under the stewardship of Craig's oldest son (Oscar Pepper) and master distiller James Crow, the Woodford Reserve Distillery reformed and modernized the process of producing whiskey in the United States — the distillery introduced the concepts of sour mash, yeast propagation and copper pot distillation.

Today, nearly two centuries later, Chris Morris — Woodford Reserve's seventh master distiller — pays homage to Pepper and Crow with the Woodford Reserve Master's Collection, an annual release of a whiskey crafted by Morris specifically to honor the distillery's innovative and pioneering history. Morris, who began working at Woodford Reserve Distillery when he was just 16 years old, is one of the foremost experts in the production and maturation of whiskey and samples up to 180 unique whiskies each day. “Our charter is to be the home of innovative whiskey,” he says.

Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn Whiskey is the tenth and latest release in Woodford’s esteemed Master’s Collection series. The whiskey, which was personally developed by Morris, pays tribute to early distillery pioneers Oscar Pepper and James Crow, who used white corn in their mashbills throughout the 1830s, 1840s and 1850s. Compared to traditional yellow corn, the use of white corn lends the whiskey a more mellow, nuanced flavor, which is especially adept at enhancing the flavor of secondary grains, including rye and malt.

As a result, Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn Whiskey has an aroma of tupelo honey, chopped nuts, apple candy and sugar cookies, which leads to a palate filled with vanilla, clove, cedar, lemon custard and shortbread. The finish is delicate and memorable, with hints of pepper, oak and light smoke rounding out this complete whiskey.

“This Master's Collection release has, in a way, allowed us to go back in time and create a new bourbon by drawing upon materials from our distillery's historic past,” says Morris. “Focusing on white corn and honoring the landmark work of Pepper and Crow, we worked to produce an expression that we hope they would approve of.”

Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn Whiskey is a brand-new, limited edition whiskey, and we have only a select number of bottles available. Pick one up today!
