The American Prairie Reserve is superb premium bourbon whiskey dedicated to one of the greatest land preservation projects of our time. The Reserve in Montana is a 5000 square mile land tract the size of Connecticut restored to what Lewis and Clark would have seen.

The whiskey itself is a small-batch blend of two straight Bourbons, a 6 year from Seagrams in Lawrenceberg, Indiana and a 10 year old from Four Roses with a higher rye content in the mashbill by comparison:
6 year old Bourbon: Mashbill of 75% Corn, 20% rye, 5% barley malt.
10 year old Bourbon: Mashbill of 60% Corn, 35% rye, and 5% barley malt.

High West Distillery donates 10% of its profits from the sale of each bottle to the American Prairie Foundation.
