Woodford Reserve

Woodford Reserve is produced in Versailles, Kentucky. The distillery is situated on the historic site that dates back to the late 18th century and has a rich heritage in bourbon production.

Woodford Reserve utilizes copper pot stills for distillation. Copper pot stills play a crucial role in the distillation process, as they help contribute to the character and smoothness of the bourbon. Copper interacts with the spirit, helping to remove unwanted sulfur compounds and allowing for the development of complex flavors.

With the exception of their Batch Proof and some Distillery Series releases, Woodford Reserve releases are all bottled at 90.4 proof.
