FAQs

What does bourbon taste like?

Depending on your bourbon’s mash of corn, rye, wheat and barley and how long it has been aged in oak casks, your favourite bourbon in Australia will spoil your palate with the saccharine taste of caramel, vanilla and oak. With its low flavours of molasses, spices and sometimes a fiery flavour towards the back of your throat from its high ABV, you can enjoy a balanced flavour profile to complement time spent with family and friends.

How should bourbon be served?

Bourbon in Australia is loved for its sweet and brooding flavour profile that lends itself to be sipped neat to sample its nuanced top and low notes or add a drop of mineral water to open up the spirit’s alcohol for more mellow tasting notes. Its medium body is easy to pair with various mixers, including cola, fruit juice and lemonade or blend it with other spirits and garnishes to build a vivacious cocktail.

What is the difference between whisky and bourbon?

Bourbon is a USA-style whiskey that must be distilled stateside from a minimum of 51% corn, be at least 80 proof (40% alcohol by volume — ABV) and be aged in virgin, charred American white oak barrels for at least two years. Additionally, these casks are usually sent to Europe and other whisky producers to age their creations and add a hint of bourbon’s signature molasses-tasting flavours.
