Corner Creek Reserve Bourbon - Item Code: 06344
Bourbon is most often associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, although technically it can be produced anywhere in the United States. Kentucky is traditionally where American bourbon has been produced since the late 18th century. To be considered a bourbon whiskey, the drink must contain at least 51% corn and must be aged in new carbonized white oak barrels. Bourbon whiskey is available in bottles of eighty ABV (40% ABV) or more and cannot contain any color or aroma additives. A versatile alcohol that can be drunk pure, with water or ice, also goes well with cocktails like an Old Fashioned.
Derived from the Dutch word brandewijn, which means roasted or boiled wine, in the broadest sense of the word, cognac is any liquor made by distilling fruit wine. Although any fruit can be used, wine grapes are the most common. Clear brandy, commonly referred to as Eau de Vie, is aged and bottled immediately after distillation. Finer grape brandies are usually aged in oak barrels for two years (VS) to six years (XO) or more, gradually acquiring color and complexity as they interact with the wood.
