Blade and Bow Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon /45.5% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
An homage to the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey uses a unique Solera System aging process to preserve some of the distillery’s oldest whiskey stocks. The Solera liquid is mingled with other fine whiskies aged and bottled at Stitzel-Weller then aged in new charred American white oak barrels. This bourbon has a subtle aroma of fresh fruit and a taste that includes hints of dried apricot, ripe pear and a sweet roasted grain. The finish features notes of charred oak and warm winter spices. Each bottle, adorned with one of five distinct keys, welcomes a new generation to the art of bourbon making. Simply mix with elderflower liqueur, simple syrup, club soda, orange slices and a brandied cherry for a refreshing tasting “New Fashioned” cocktail. Includes one 91 proof 750 mL bottle of Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Please drink responsibly.Nose: Reminiscent of fresh fruit Taste: Hint of dried apricot and ripe pear on entry before melting into a sweet roasted grain Finish: notes of charred oak and warm winter spicesView all products by Blade and BowCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Blade and Bow is a really goodl, reasonably priced, bourbon and we usually have a bottle on hand.
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.
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.
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.
