Our first aged whiskey product was released in May 2011. To make good whiskey, start with good grains. That was the basis for our first whiskey batches and continues as our foundation today. In our first few years, as a small artisan or “craft” distillery, we didn’t make a lot of product because we were small for starters, and until now, we didn’t have any way to get our product to our customers. Thanks to three great distributors, beginning in May 2011, we can bring our products to your favorite liquor store!
After four years of aging, whiskey made from a mash consisting of at least 50% corn is known as bourbon. We have mixed aged bourbon whiskey with un-aged grain spirits to create our unique American product known as “Blended Whiskey”. We have branded it as Bickering Brothers Blended Whiskey (BBB). It is 50% straight bourbon whiskey and 50% grain spirits. The grain spirits are also mostly corn, the difference is the bourbon is stored at 120 proof in charred oak barrels for at least four years. The grain spirits are not aged, at least not for four years anyway.
Our blended whiskey is smooth, with vanillin and oak undertones. It prefers to be served alone on one ice cube, but also opens up well with a little extra water. As with all whiskeys, it plays well with most mixes. We produced a limited quantity our first years of operation. We added the un-aged grain spirits to double our volume and because it produced such a drinkable whiskey—but we just can’t stretch it any further. So get yours while it is available. As more of our product ages, more will be released. Unfortunately, we can’t speed up time and we can’t make more last year, or four years ago.
As with all of our spirits, our BBB (Bickering Brothers Blended) is perfect for sitting back and reflecting on your accomplishments—past and future. Take your time, relax and enjoy. Please remember, we make better spirits for better people, and better people drink responsibly!
