James E Pepper 1776 Bourbon 750 ML Hard to Find !

Established in 1776, at the dawn of the American Revolution, and distilled over 3 family generations through 1958, the Pepper family brand of whiskey is the oldest & most legendary whiskey brand in both Kentucky and American history. Starting with Elijah Pepper (distiller c. 1776-1838) and then Oscar Pepper (distiller 1838-1867), the Colonel James E. Pepper (distiller 1867-1906) was the 3rd generation of that distilling legacy. He was a larger than life bourbon aristocrat and took the family brand to its highest peak. A KY captain of American industry, he raced thoroughbreds in the Kentucky Derby, traveled in a private rail car & made famous the “Old-Fashioned” cocktail. He nicknamed his whiskey “Old 1776” and proudly proclaimed his continued use of his grandfather’s original Revolutionary-era recipes.

Made with a high-rye recipe consisting of over 38% rye in the mash-bill, this is a bold and spicy bourbon. Like the rye it is also bottled at 100 proof and non-chill-filtered. Rich bourbon sweetness compliments the spiciness of the rye. Flavors of vanilla, honey, baking spice, stewed fruit and cocoa show through on the palate. Great if served neat or on the rocks and it makes a classic old-fashioned try it with some orange bitters to really set it off.
