While law does not require bourbon to be made in Kentucky, the Bluegrass state produces approximately 95% of the world’s supply. There are several primary reasons Kentucky remains the bourbon capital of the world today. Kentucky was America’s original west. When early settlers moved West in search of more land and resources many settled in what is now the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These settlers of Scottish, German and Irish descent brought with them their stills and distilling knowledge. They quickly discovered that Kentucky was the ideal place to make great whiskey.
One reason is the vast deposits of limestone rock that filters unwanted minerals out of the water used in the distilling process. A second is the soil and climate are perfect for growing corn; bourbon’s primary ingredient and source of its distinctive sweet flavor profile. Another factor is the often wild swings in temperature from season to season, and sometimes even day to day. Since bourbon is aged in charred oak barrels, the changes in temperature cause the wood to repeatedly absorb and release the whiskey, giving the finished product its characteristic oak notes and amber color. We are extremely proud of our Kentucky heritage. Blanton’s, the Original Single Barrel Bourbon, has always been and will always be made in Kentucky, the bourbon capital of the world.
Original Single Barrel
Taken from the center-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H, Blanton’s Original Single Barrel was once designated for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends. Today, everyone has access to the world’s first single barrel bourbon. The taste profile is sweet, with notes of citrus and oak. The creamy vanilla nose is teased with caramel and butterscotch, all underscored by familiar baking spices such as clove, nutmeg, or cinnamon. Blanton’s Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984.
