The bourbon is crafted exclusively from New York corn, which is milled, mashed and fermented before being distilled through a 300-gallon copper pot still. Following distillation, Bootlegger Bourbon is matured in 5-gallon, charred American oak barrels for just over one year. Then, the bourbon is brought to proof and bottled by hand. Spicy aroma, with touches of baking spices, coffee and Christmas cake. Notes of cinnamon and redhot candies, smooth vanilla and cocoa on the palate.
