How is Bourbon Whiskey made?
Grain Bill: 60% Corn, 10% Oats, 10% Wheat, 20% Malted Barley.
Over 800 pounds of grain are loaded into the distillery’s mash turn. Hot water is then added and recirculated through the grain to convert the grains natural starches into simple sugars. The resulting grain sugar wash is then transferred into one of the distillery’s fermenting vessels. A specially selected Whiskey yeast is added to the wash for fermentation. Once fermentation is complete, the Whiskey is distilled around 150 Proof. The Whiskey is then proofed down to 125 proof and stored in a new, small format, heavily charred 30 gallon Missouri White Oak Barrel for approximately six months. The Whiskey is then proofed down with Spring Water to where it is bottled at 90 Proof.
