Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon // 750 ml
To be labeled a Kentucky straight bourbon, the whiskey must have a mash-bill of at least 51% corn, be distilled and aged in new white oak casks in Kentucky, and be bottled straight, without any additives or flavors other than Kentucky limestone water to dilute it to the desired bottle proof. Corner Creek Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a blend of 5 and 7-year-old bourbon that is non-chill filtered to maintain all of the well-aged flavor.
Corner Creek was founded by two industry veterans in the mid-1990s, well before the bourbon boom started in 2011. With extensive experience and contacts in the Kentucky distilling business, the founders were able to source great whiskies and choose select casks for their annual blends—including from a well-regarded distiller known for their four-grain bourbons. After 2010, the few remaining distillers began seeing increased interest in bourbon and realized they had reduced their aged inventories to a precarious level. As a result, four-grain whiskey was no longer available for purchase by the barrel.
Corner Creek was able to purchase a final round of several thousand barrels of 6-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon. They also entered in a contract distillation arrangement with a famous, large producer of award-winning bourbon. This allowed them to buy enough whiskey to maintain Corner Creek sales but also required them to have millions of dollars tied up in aging inventory and maintaining a place to store thousands of barrels.
Jay Maltby, the original founder of Angel’s Envy bourbon, purchased the brand and inventory, and recruited Lincoln Henderson as Master Distiller to begin distilling, aging, and bottling Corner Creek bourbon at the Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood, Kentucky. This distillery is located just outside of Louisville on farm property where the whiskies are made with estate-rown grains. For the past four years, their bourbon and rye whiskies have been estate grown and distilled.
This small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a 5-year-old blend of the contract distilled 3 grain mash bill (70% Corn, 12% Rye, and 18% Malted Barley) and 7- year-old, from sourced casks, of “wheated” bourbon. With this unique blend, Corner Creek is, technically, once again a “four-grain” whiskey. A well-aged, blended bourbon, the wheat comes through in the overall smoothness and gentle finish after a fruit forward start.
