Calumet Farm Single Rack Black 14 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey
Calumet Farm Bourbon Whiskey pays homage to Wright’s beautiful farm and his tradition of breeding winners. The bourbon is made from a traditional mashbill of corn, rye and malted barley that are distilled before being aged in virgin, American oak casks. Calumet Farm Single Rack Black 14 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey represents both the prestigious nature and hard-earned quality of a premium Kentucky straight bourbon. It is painstakingly crafted from extremely small batches of 19 barrels. All barrels used are aged in a single, center cut rack from the ideal maturation location and conditions inside the rick house. This expression of the Calumet Farm Bourbon family is a true convergence of craftsmanship and flavor. It is Non-Chill Filtered for added depth of character and color.
The Calumet Farm Single Rack name also closely ties to horses. William Monroe Wright established Calumet Farm in 1924 on a small farm in Lexington, Ky., after making a fortune in baking powder. After Wright’s death in 1933 his son Warren began to move the farm’s business toward Thoroughbred racing, and it became known for its winners: Calumet Farm produced two Triple Crown winners, eight Kentucky Derby winners, and eight Preakness winners. They also have 11 horses in the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame.
