Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits one of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries. The iconic Woodford Reserve Distillery sits on the grounds of a National historic landmark. It is Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where the legendary Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812, beginning a dynastic legacy in Kentucky Bourbon.

It was on this same sacred soil that years later, Master Distiller James Christopher Crow developed his whiskey-making methods, alongside Oscar Pepper, "which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation." Revolutionizing concepts of sour mash and yeast propagation, and modernizing the process of whiskey production in the US.

Produced under the Brown-Forman Corporation, Woodford Reserve Bourbons are premium spirits crafted in small batches and aged in new char oak barrels. This artisanal process allows them to "craft using all five sources of bourbon flavor, giving it its distinct taste and crisp, clean finish."

Woodford Reserve’s Distillery houses an impressive 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, along with their iconic copper pot stills, and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. Their facility also has one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world. An impressive mechanism which gives Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor. This Woodford’s annual Master’s Collection series celebrates Master Distiller Chris Morris’ vision and dedication to innovation and craftsmanship within the bourbon and whiskey category. This Winter 2020 release is bottled at 123.6 proof.
