blanton gold edition bourbon whiskey
Blanton’s Original Single Barrel was the first Single Barrel bourbon to be commercially mass market. It was introduced in 1984 by Ancient Age Distillery’s master distiller Elmer T Lee, a former employee of Colonel Albert Bacon Blanton who hired him 35 years earlier. Nearing retirement Lee was asked to create a bourbon of ‘exceptionally high quality’, so named his new bourbon Blanton’s Original Single Barrel as a tribute to Colonel Blanton who whilst distillery president would hand pick and bottle ‘single barrels’ for his important guests.
Blanton’s Original Single Barrel Bourbon is bottled at 46.5% ABV / 93 Proof, each bottles label contains the date it was bottled, the barrel number it came from and the rickhouse number where it lay to age.
