Go-To Gift: Distiller’s Select ($34.99 for 750mL; available nationwide and 32 countries worldwide)
Perfect For: The Premium Bourbon Novice
Created at America’s smallest and oldest operating distillery, the rich heritage of Woodford Reserve is captured in every drop of the classic Distiller’s Select small-batch bourbon. Distilled three times in copper pot stills—at the only distillery in Kentucky to still use this technique—and aged in unique limestone warehouses, Woodford Reserve is bottled at 90.4 proof with a rich, rounded and smooth taste, with complex hints of mint, leather, and fruit. Whether served neat or in a cocktail, Distiller’s Select is the perfect option for the cocktail enthusiast.
The Modern Classic: Double Oaked ($54.99 for a 750mL; available nationwide and 32 countries worldwide)
Perfect For: The Bourbon Enthusiast
Launched in March 2012, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked marks the brand’s first permanent line extension: an ultra-premium bourbon that’s twice barreled in White Oak for additional flavor and deeper color. The bourbon fan on your list will appreciate the full-bodied mix of vanilla, dark caramel, hazelnut, apple fruit and spices that come as a result of the two unique barrels used to craft every bottle.
The New Release: Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir Finish ($99.99 for 750mL; available in select US and international markets beginning mid-October)
Perfect For: The Bourbon Connoisseur
The limited edition Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir Finish is the ninth installment in Woodford’s celebrated Master’s Collection series and is the first whiskey to be aged in California pinot noir barrels. Created by Woodford Reserve Master Distiller ChrisMorris and developed in conjunction with Sonoma-Cutrer Winemaking Director Mick Schroeter, the unique blend features a never-before-experienced fruit forward flavor profile formed by the Burgundian style pinot noir barrels used in the aging process. By adjusting the whiskey’s maturation, a source perfected to create the incredibly balanced Woodford Reserve, comes a one-of-a-kind blend that serves as proof of the brand’s longstanding aim to create innovative products.
