The regulations governing Bourbon are many and varied. We give you an insight into the history and today’s world of the American whiskey dream.
PennyPacker is a characteristic yet mild straight bourbon whiskey, with a palate of smooth vanilla and caramel notes.
Selected mature maize from the fields around the distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky forms the basis of PennyPacker. Three types of grain are used in distillation: Maize, rye and barley, with the maize content in PennyPacker being an above-average high proportion of 70%. The law states that the maize content in bourbon only has to be at least 51%. To distil this whiskey, we use spring water from the deep, thick limestone strata that run through Kentucky. This water is particularly pure and soft.
PennyPacker is made using the continuous distillation method. This means that the distillation process is a long and uninterrupted one, culminating in the desired full-bodied but pure distillate. This guarantees PennyPacker’s always consistent character and its constantly high quality. Under the provisions of American law, the bourbon is always matured in new barrels made from American oak that are charred from the inside. The charring enables the whiskey to penetrate into the wood more easily, thereby giving it the vanilla and caramel notes that define the character of PennyPacker.
PennyPacker is kept in these barrels for many years, significantly longer than is required by law (statutory maturing time: three years minimum). The cellar master alone decides on the final maturing time, and he gives the bourbon plenty of time. PennyPacker is a straight bourbon whiskey. Only bourbon that comes exclusively from one distillery and is not mixed with bourbons of different origins may bear the designation "straight".
PennyPacker is available in 0.7l bottles (40% vol.) and is a full-bodied yet mild straight bourbon whiskey, with a strong character and a palate of smooth vanilla and caramel notes. PennyPacker is the bourbon for the young and the young-at-heart, for people who demand quality and authenticity, for those with a yearning for the true beauty of America, the land of unlimited possibilities.
Thanks to its high quality, PennyPacker is especially suitable to enjoy neat. Americans usually drink it "on the rocks", but also as a long drink or a cocktail. It goes especially well with lime and ginger ale, makes a superb drink with soda and is also excellent in bar favourites such as the Manhattan.
