Blanton's was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon in the world, and it set the standards for others to follow. This fantastic product was named after the late Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton (1881-1959), who managed the largest distillery of its day. It was during that time that he created a very special and limited supply of bourbon, which he hand-picked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon is aged in one new American oak barrel for at least 8 years, unlike most others, never blended with any other bourbon. When a barrel is believed to have reached its optimum age, it is evaluated by the Master Distiller and a panel of professional tasters. There is no margin for error, because there is no way to compensate for flavour by mixing with any other liquid. The barrels that have been chosen are then dumped and bottled. From the beginning to end, making Blanton's is a labour intensive process. Grains: Blanton's is made by using the finest Kentucky and Indiana corn, selected rye, and superior malted barley.
