Solera Barrel Finished
Proof: 90 (45% ABV)
Mashbill: 75% corn, 21% rye, & 4% malted barley
Age: Blend of barrels between 2 and 10 years old
Selected from barrels aged in cooler, more humid parts of the rickhouse, this high rye mash bill yields a classic, soft, sweet vanilla & spicy cinnamon, character. After more than 2 years in a #4 charred oak barrel, the straight bourbon whiskey is finished in our solera barrel. Here it’s married with bourbons of older age - bringing an ageless complexity.
Meet Our Solera Barrel
Our 1816 Reserve is an innovative update to our traditional straight bourbon whiskey. Utilizing our own version of the classic solera process, we bring together 100 fully aged barrels of 1816 into one large, charred, oak barrel that never goes empty. After each small batch bottling, we then top the solera with 10-15 mature barrels. This continued process allows the whiskies to marry together, imparting a gradual complexity over time.
