About Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Warehouse C Bourbon Whiskey
Warehouse C was built by E.H. Taylor in 1885 and quickly became his favorite ― the final piece of the puzzle for his distillery. This whiskey is a one-time-only release, meaning that it’s a very limited expression. These barrels have spent 10 years in the center Warehouse C, half of them sitting on the 2nd, the other half on the 5th floor. The 2nd floor is perfect for older barrels with its dry floor and tightly packed barrels, while the 5th floor has plenty of windows that provide airflow and sunlight. It’s a wonderfully flavorful 100-proof bourbon.

About E.H. Taylor, Jr.
In 1869, Taylor purchased a small distillery situated on the banks of the Kentucky River. After christening the distillery O.F.C Distillery (OFC was an abbreviation for Old Fire Copper), Taylor began renovating and modernizing the plant — he purchased copper fermentation tanks, new grain grinding equipment, and unique, columnar stills. During his tenure, Taylor also implemented several innovative distilling techniques, including aging bourbon in climate-controlled rickhouses.
At the time, an overwhelming number of distilleries were still not aging their whiskey. In order to make their spirits palatable, some distillers and retailers added juices and syrups to sweeten their bourbon, while others added acid and tobacco to give the whiskey its signature, amber hue.
Armed with distilling experience and a political pedigree, Taylor, together with Treasury Secretary John G. Carlisle, was instrumental in passing the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897 (27 C.F.R. 5.21). The act required that any spirit labeled as “Bonded” or “Bottled-in-Bond” be the product of one distiller at one distillery during one distillation season. In addition, the Act required that bonded spirits be aged in a federally bonded warehouse under U.S. government supervision for at least four years and bottled at 100 proof.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
