Woodford Reserve Distillery began making bourbon in 1812. Located in Kentucky, the distillery’s art of making bourbon is an important part of history of the United States. Woodford Reserve is crafted from a grain recipe of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malted barley. This provides a balance of sweetness of corn and spice of rye. The white oak barrels is also a key ingredient to their maturation process, contributing flavor, complexity and balance.
