The use of fresh, 'virgin' American Oak barrels is one of the key contributors to the overall flavour of Kentucky Bourbons, bold with spice, vanilla and a strong woody influence.
America has seen a considerable growth of craft and small-scale producers, many of which are eschewing the traditional styles, offering a more diverse range of grains, casks and types of whiskey being produced.

Corner Creek 40% 750ml
Distilled and matured at an undisclosed distillery in Bardstown Kentucky, and claims to be only lightly filtered to retain the whiskies maximum flavour and aroma. This is the first time we've seen Corner Creek in New Zealand.
