Widow Jane Lucky 13 Bourbon
Bourbon /49.5% ABV / New York, United States
- New York, United States
The whiskey aging process is influenced by time & place. Aren’t we lucky. These barrels have all been influenced by the greatly varying temperatures & humidity levels of their original source and their time in our Rick House in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The different rick house positions combined with climate variations have led to subtle deviations in flavor & alcohol strength. In this limited edition private barrel program, accounts can taste, pick & buy an entire single barrel of Bourbon. Up from the 12 year, this 13 year release's extra year of age is quite special and no barrel will be exactly the same.View all products by Widow JaneCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

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.
