History: While Woodford Reserve opened its doors less than 25 years ago, it has quickly become one of the most prominent Bourbons on the market. This complex Bourbon is made on the historic site where whiskey pioneer Elijah Pepper began distilling whiskey in 1812. Today, Woodford Reserve is the best-selling Bourbon over $30 and the distillery is one of the top destinations on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
Impress your friends when you tell them: The Woodford Reserve Distillery is located in Kentucky thoroughbred country and is only a few miles from the home of Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify.
