Premium small-batch Kentucky bourbon Woodford Reserve is currently leading the renaissance of premium bourbons in the UK. To add a twist to a bar’s drinks menu, infusion jars can be used for infusing new flavours into your Woodford Reserve cocktails.
In the UK, Woodford Reserve from Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands is growing at over 40% and is the drink of choice for any whiskey connoisseur. Rich in history and tradition, the first bottle was produced in 1812. Woodford Reserve is crafted rather than just produced and it is this attention to detail that has seen Woodford Reserve firmly establish itself among bourbon aficionados.
Crafted at Glenn’s Creek in Woodford County, Kentucky, Woodford Reserve is triple-distilled in copper pots in the time-honoured method of production. The whiskey matures in new charred American oak barrels in special barrel houses where a heating system allows extra maturation cycles to be added to build its caramel aromas and distinct toffee and vanilla flavours.
The Woodford Reserve infusion jars are perfect for re-fashioning favourite classic American cocktails. Fill an infusion jar with two bottles of Woodford Reserve, two cinnamon sticks, a clove, star anise, lemon and orange peels, raspberries, blackberries and sloe berries and allow the mixture to stand for 10 days. The result is a complex, spicy and citrus finish to enhance the prominent features of the bourbon.
To add a luxury twist to your back bar, Woodford Reserve is offering one lucky Bar magazine reader the chance to win a branded Woodford Reserve infusion jar to infuse new flavours into your next batch of stylish Woodford Reserve cocktails with anything from black cherries to bacon.
