Blanton Original Single Barrel (1x 70cl)

Single Barrel Bourbon started with Blanton’s in 1984. Nearing retirement, Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee was tasked with creating a bourbon of exceptionally high quality. With careful reflection, he recalled the earlier days of his career in the late 1940s when he worked under Colonel Albert B. Blanton. Colonel Blanton was the president of the distillery until 1952. Mr. Lee remembered that when Colonel Blanton would entertain dignitaries and other important guests he would handpick “honey barrels” from the center cut of Warehouse H and have that bourbon bottled one barrel at a time. As a tribute to Colonel Blanton’s old tradition, Elmer T. Lee decided to name this new bourbon “Blanton’s Single Barrel”.    

Taken from the centre-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. Best served neat or on the rocks. Bottled at 46.5% alcohol by volume. The horse and jockey atop the bottle stoppers are now a recognized trademark of Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon. The rich heritage and tradition of horses in Kentucky parallel that of bourbon. This is their way of paying homage to this Kentucky heritage.

Bulleit Bourbon (1x 70cl)

In 1987, Thomas E. Bulleit, Jr., fulfilled a lifelong dream of reviving an old family bourbon recipe by starting the Bulleit Distilling Company. Inspired by his great-great-grandfather Augustus Bulleit, who made a high-rye whiskey between 1830-1860, Tom left a successful law practice and risked everything to experience life on the frontier. Today, there are many people who are glad he did.

High rye content gives it a bold, spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. Kentucky limestone-filtered water provides a foundation for the bourbon's character, while charred American oak barrels lend a smoky backbone. Their ageing philosophy is simple: they wait until the bourbon is ready.

Bulleit Bourbon continues to be inspired by the whiskey pioneered by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only ingredients of the very highest quality are used. The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn, and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone filtered water. Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that's distinctively clean and smooth.

It is medium amber in colour, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. On the mid-palate it is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. The finish is long, dry, and satiny with a light toffee flavour.

Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon (1x 70cl)

In 1884, Paul Jones Jr, moved his thriving business to Louisville, Kentucky, where he opened an office in a section of historic Main Street called, Whiskey Row. Four years later, he trademarked the name Four Roses. All but six of 183 Bourbon distilleries were closed during Prohibition. Four Roses was however one of the six distilleries legally licensed to distill Bourbon for “Medicinal Purposes Only.” The staff at  Four Roses have a passion for quality and their pride in handcrafting an award winning Bourbon is evident in the smooth, mellow taste that has become the signature of the Four Roses Brand. The current Master Distiller Brent Elliott says it is hard to call what he does a job because, to him, “it’s a privilege and a passion to be a part of Four Roses”.

If you’ve ever wanted proof that mingling Bourbons is an art unto itself, you’ll find it in Four Roses perfectly balanced, Small Batch Bourbon. Four original and limited Bourbon recipes have been expertly selected by their Master Distiller at the peak of maturation to create this very mellow and perfectly balanced Bourbon. You can enjoy it best straight up, on the rocks or simply with a splash. 

The aromas are of mellow spice, rich fruit, hints of sweet oak & caramel. The flavours are mellow, with ripened red berries and dried spice, which are  well-balanced as well as rich. Four Roses Small Batch has a soft character with a smooth and pleasantly long finish.

Michters US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon (1x 70cl)

Michter’s is proud to honour a historical legacy going back to the founding of America’s first whiskey company in 1753. Originally known as Shenk's and later as Bomberger's, the whiskey company which ultimately became known as Michter's was founded by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer, in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania. In its earliest days, Shenk's produced whiskey from rye grain, a favorite local crop in the Pennsylvania Blue Mountain Valley where the distillery was located. According to Pennsylvania historical lore, this particular rye whiskey was so valued that when the Revolutionary War broke out, General George Washington visited the distillery and purchased whiskey to fortify his men as they hunkered down in their camp through the long, brutal winter at Valley Forge. Over 200 years later the Michter's Pennsylvania management would say Michter's was "the whiskey that warmed the American Revolution."

The US*1 expressions, so named to honour Michter’s heritage harkening back to America’s first whiskey company, consist of some of the finest single barrel and truly small batch whiskeys available. Distilled to Master Distiller Pam Heilmann’s exacting specifications, no US*1 whiskey is ever released until Pam and the Michter’s tasting panel deems it ready.

Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn. It is then matured to the peak of perfection. Truly “small batch” each batch of the US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is batched in a holding tank sized to fit a maximum of twenty full barrels, leaving no margin for “blending out” imperfection and thus necessitating excellence from every barrel. Reflecting the spirit of the Bluegrass State, Michter’s US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is nuanced, mellow and earthy.

This whisky has aromas and flavours of rich caramel with balanced vanilla and stone fruit notes. It goes on in the palate with a smoky depth and oaky finish.

Canadian Club (1x 70cl)

Hiram Walker, a successful grain merchant, founded what would become Canadian Club in 1858. His first distillery was established in Walkerville, Ontario because of the exceptional quality of the local grains there. In those early days, if you wanted whisky, you took your own jug or bottle to the local store and filled it from a generic barrel. This whisky was different—smooth and easy to drink and they wanted people to know who made it. Canadians soon took a liking to this whisky, and came to love it as one of their own. In America, it was considered special, because it was sold exclusively in the finer gentlemen’s clubs of the era. Soon, the whisky came to be known by the name “Club Whisky.” It wasn’t long before Club Whisky began to cultivate popularity around the world. Eventually, its popularity began to affect the sale of American Bourbon in the United States. This forced the U.S. Government to require all Canadian distillers to put the country of origin on their label. And so Club Whisky became Canadian Club and a legacy was launched.

A giant of Canadian whisky since 1858, at Canadian Club they still use the unique recipe and process which was first created over 150 years ago. This has ensured that they are able to continue making an exceptionally rich and smooth whisky. The grains they use to make Canadian Club are rye, malted rye, and malted barley. It’s aged for longer than the 3 years required by law in oak barrels before bottling to achieve the smoothest possible flavour.

Canadian Club is refreshing and smooth. It has a bright gold colour and the aromas are fresh and soft, with an almond nuttiness, as well as a hint of peppery spice. The flavours are spicy and zesty, complimented with hints of rich oak, sweet vanilla and a pleasant sweetness. The finish is clean, dry and lingering with subtle oak.

Distilled to Master Distiller Pam Heilmann’s exacting specifications, no US*1 whiskey is ever released until Pam and the Michter’s tasting panel deems it ready.

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, Michter's US*1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavour profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release the US*1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly three-year absence from the market, deeming it to be “just right” and also “the best it’s ever been.” Crucially, their US#1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains any grain neutral spirits – hence its “unblended” distinction.

This whiskey has plenty of deep butterscotch and vanilla notes, hints of caramel and dried fruit, with a ripened fruit finish.
