Five and 20 Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Five and 20 Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The Five and 20 operation stands on 3 great pillars: versatility, self-sufficiency, and sustainability. Their facility is equally well-suited for distilling, brewing, and blending, producing vodka, gin, whiskey, brandy, as well as various styles of beer. They employ a 500-liter Christian Carl still for their higher-proof and clean spirits, and a 2500-liter Vendome pot still for whiskeys. They grow most of their corn, rye, and oats on their own farm and source the remaining from neighboring ones.Head Distiller Joe Nelson has been brewing since 2008 and has focused his know-how and passion into distilling and all forms of fermentation. You can visit the Westfield Wonder which includes the Five and 20 Distillery year-round to try out the spirits and beers right at their source, as well as visit the Mazza Chautauqua Wine Cellars with New York wines, or sit down for a farm-fresh seasonal meal at their Bird eatery.The Five and 20 Straight Bourbon Whiskey is based on a mash bill of 70 percent estate-grown and NY corn, 20 percent NY rye, and 15 percent NY malted barley. It has been aged for 2 years in new, charred American white oak barrels, which shows prominently on the palate with notes of caramel and smoke. The nose is softer with caramel and vanilla, as well as some sweet corn. A hint of spice balances it all until the dry and smoky finish.Get your bottle today!
