Unlike a typical 100% malt whiskey, Woodford Reserve is a Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey crafted from 51% malt and aged in new charred oak barrels, making it the malt whiskey for bourbon drinkers. The release of Malt showcases Woodford Reserve’s ongoing dedication to innovation and flavor by focusing on the adjustment of one of the five sources of flavor - the grain recipe. The result is a pre-prohibition style Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey that delivers a nutty, sweet profile.
The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812. The present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history. Often cited as the birthplace of bourbon, it was here in 1838 that Dr James Crow perfected the “Sour Mash” process that is still used in bourbon production today, adding to the distillery’s historical value. In fact, in 1995 the distillery was officially recognized by the US Government and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, culminating in its recognition as a National Historic Landmark in 2000.
