Booker’s bourbon is aged between six and eight years and is bottled un-cut and without chill filtering at its natural proof between 121 and 130.

Bully Boy White Whiskey
A popular spirit during prohibition, white whiskey (moonshine) was manufactured using primitive techniques and inferior ingredients making it harsh and undrinkable. Times have changed. Bully Boy’s USDA certified organic white whiskey is clean and mellow. It’s akin to vodka, but with bolder flavor notes. You can enjoy it neat or use it in place of vodka in your favorite mixed drink.
Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced by Beam Inc. The bourbon has a dark, golden-brown color due to the relatively long aging process, which allows it to absorb more sugar from the wood than is the case for the other Jim Beam Small Batch brands. The company describes the flavor as “rich, sweet, woody, full-bodied, almost fruity”, and the aroma as “toasted nuts, grain, oak”.
Maker’s 46 begins its life as Maker’s Mark Bourbon, aged in charred American oak barrels. Then Maker’s 46 takes a detour. We separate fully matured Maker’s Mark and age it a bit longer inside barrels containing carefully seared French-oak staves. The seared staves and extra aging add more vanilla, more caramel and more oak taste to Maker’s 46. The result is a bigger, bolder, more complex bourbon that isn’t an “acquired” taste. You’ll enjoy it from the very first sip.
Woodford Reserve has released a new bourbon called Double Oaked in the last couple of months. The whiskey starts with standard Woodford, which is distilled in both copper pot and column stills before aging in heavily charred white oak barrels.
