The mighty Mississippi River has played a crucial role in the history of Bourbon. The river has acted as the primary mode of transportation for centuries - allowing corn from the Midwest to be delivered to the Bourbon makers of Kentucky. After distillation, barrels of the finished spirit would float down the river on barges and flatboats to New Orleans and from there, spread across this great land. The river is also the source of the natural, pure limestone-rich water that is unique and necessary for Bourbon making.
The river’s importance in Bourbon history is undeniable, and without it, Bourbon may not have become the beloved American sprint it is today. Tradewater Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is made using only our finest barrels of Bourbon which capture the unique characteristics of the spirit we work so hard to craft.
