Breckenridge Port Cask Finish Bourbon Whiskey
Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge Distillery makes one of the best bourbons in the world. The distillery, which is only 4,000 square feet itself, is situated 9,600 feet above sea level, making it the highest distillery in the world. There, Jordan Via — Breckenridge's master distiller — ferments a mash of 56% corn, 38% rye and 6% malted barley in an open-top Scottish fermenter before distilling it twice through a $140,000, 550-gallon, Vendome copper-pot still originally made in Kentucky.
With a profound range of expressions ranging from award winning bourbons and Port cask finished whiskeys to Chili flavored vodkas, and over two dozen awards, including 2 “Distillery of the Year” awards, Breckenridge is without saying a well-established player in the game. This is very impressive considering Bryan Nolt founded Breckenridge in 2007.
Breckenridge Whiskey Port Cask Finish is their award-winning Bourbon Whiskey aged in 59 gallon Tawny Port casks of various ages for 4-6 months, imparting aromas and flavors of sultana raisin and maple syrup to round out and soften the natural spicy finish. Finished in 8-10 barrel batches.
