Straight Bourbon Whiskey

A.D. Laws 4 Grain Straight Bourbon   
Laws Whiskey House  ·  United States
Our flagship whiskey is crafted from all four of the “American mother grains”: corn, wheat, barley and rye. There aren’t many four grain bourbons on the market as they are very difficult to make. We utilize a stepped cooking process — each grain variety requires a different cooking temperature to maximize its flavor and character. The grain requiring the most heat is milled in and cooked first; the temperature is then lowered gradually as we add the smaller flavor grains, and then complete the cooking process with the malts. This painstaking, 6.5 hour, labor-intensive process is critical to capturing the character and quality of each grain. During aging, we strive to create harmony between this complex whiskey and the vanilla and caramel notes from the newly charred, American white oak barrels to create a classic bourbon with Colorado character.

A.D. Laws Rye   
A.D. Laws  ·  United States
One of our most popular whiskeys, Secale Rye is distinctive and unapologetic. Made with 100% Colorado grains (95% rye and 5% barley), and bottled at 100 proof, this true Colorado whiskey packs a punch. Rich flavors and layered complexity refine its characteristic regional terroir.

Jack Daniel's   
Jack Daniel Distillery  ·  Lynchburg, TN
We do things a little differently around here – and that’s what gives Jack Daniel’s its distinctive character. We charcoal mellow our whiskey drop by drop, then let it age in our own handcrafted barrels. And we don’t follow a calendar. Our Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when our tasters say it is. We use our senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, our Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And, of course, by the way it tastes. 80 Proof
