Deep amber in color. Rich notes of dark fruit, caramel, sharp honey, chocolate and marzipan on the nose. A full-bodied mix of vanilla, dark caramel, hazelnut, apple, fruit and spices on the palate. The finish is long and creamy with lingering hints of honeyed apple.
Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits our historic Woodford Reserve Distillery.
One of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries, the present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same hallowed grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods, which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation.
The Distillery is home to a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, our iconic copper pot stills, and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. We also boast one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, ensuring every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor.
Woodford Reserve invites you to come visit, enjoy their bourbon, take in their scenery, and embrace their history.
