This innovative approach to twice-barreled Bourbon creates the rich and colorful flavor of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Uniquely matured in separate, charred oak barrels – the second barrel deeply toasted before a light charring – extracts additional amounts of soft, sweet oak character. The Kentucky spirit won a Double Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The aroma is so well balanced I can’t think of a bourbon I’ve had recently that matches it."

It won a Gold medal at the 2012 International Spirits Challenge.

About the Producer

The Woodford Reserve brand was introduced to the market in 1996, but its history dates back to the eighteenth century. Distillation on the site began in 1780, and the Woodford Reserve Distillery building was erected in 1838—although the site has not been continuously operational as a distillery during that history. In 1995 the distillery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 2000 it was designated a National Historic Landmark. Originally established by Elijah Pepper, the distillery was passed on to his son and was known as the Oscar Pepper Distillery when Dr. James Crow worked there in the mid-19th century. The Pepper family sold the property to Leopold Labrot and James Graham in 1878, who owned and operated it (except during Prohibition) until 1941 when it was sold to the Brown-Forman Corporation.
