Breckenridge Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Breckenridge Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge Distillery makes one of the best bourbons in the world. The distillery, which is only 4,000 square feet itself, is situated 9,600 feet above sea level, making it the highest distillery in the world. There, Jordan Via Breckenridges master distiller ferments a mash of 56 percent corn, 38 percent rye and 6 percent malted barley in an open-top Scottish fermenter before distilling it twice through a $140,000, 550-gallon, Vendome copper-pot still originally made in Kentucky.After distillation, the bourbon is aged at 120 proof in American white oak casks with a number 3 char for approximately three years and is then brought to proof using pure Rocky Mountain snowmelt from atop Mount Quandry, which has a 14,000 foot peak. In Breckenridge, we have fresh snowmelt water thats full of minerals and has its own flavor, says Bryan Nolt, Breckenridge Distillerys founder and CEO. The pH is perfect and the minerals add taste to our spirits just as salt adds flavor to foods, he says.The taste of Breckenridge Bourbon is certainly turning heads. The unusually high rye content gives it depth and complexity. At Breckenridge, when a barrel has a very distinctive flavor profile that sets it apart from the rest, its set aside for extended aging. When these special barrels reach their peak they are hand bottled, signed and stamped to be released in extremely limited quantity. These bottles represent the epitome of Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey.Rich, sumptuous top notes of toffee and caramel give way to clean burnt orange and butterscotch on the palate. Strong spicy undertones with a balanced oak profile and a fleeting hint of solvent-like ester notes, which manifest as banana peel and passion fruit. A long, reverberating finish carries the richness and balance of a classic Bourbon Whiskey.Pick up your bottle today!
