Product Description

With a unique taste all its own, Belle Meade Bourbon is crafted from a proprietary blend of different high-rye-content mash bills and complementary yeast strains. To assure the finest quality, award-winning Belle Meade Bourbon is blended in small batches of selected barrels, sourced from the nation’s finest distillers, before being aged to perfection. Aromas of maple syrup and caramel with floral fragrances and a citrus zest give way to notes of vanilla and caramel flavors with bold rye spice and hints of apricot. The careful aging, high-rye blend, and 90.4 bottling proof result in a versatile bourbon that shines whether served neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation to your favorite cocktail, standing up to mixers that often mask other whiskeys. Proudly bottled in the state of Tennessee. Please enjoy responsibly. Belle Meade Straight Bourbon Whiskey 45.2% alc/vol ©2021 Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery, Nashville, TN

    I've been around the bourbon selections over the years, and for this selective Nebraskan, Belle Meade is a tremendous choice. It has this modest spice flavor that works when I drink it neat or add ice. In fact, more than once I've had it with ice prior to dinner and neat after, rounding out my dining experience. As for Drizly, no place I'd rather buy. No matter if its my favorite scotch, my wife's gin, or Belle Meade, Drizly provides a complete selection, rapid turn around, helpful (and available!) customer service, and great pricing. I generally buy 5-6 bottles per selection to spread out the shipping cost, and my orders always arrive on time and exactly as ordered.

FAQs

Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
