Many folks would argue that the birthplace of Bourbon is Bourbon County, Kentucky and that if it isn’t distilled in Kentucky, it isn’t the real deal. Now, let’s be honest – Kentucky is home to several great bourbons.
Although Texas and Indiana also distill a few outstanding bourbons, today we’re just going to focus on Kentucky and the variety of fine Kentucky bourbons you can find at Town Center Liquor, here in Jarrell, Texas.
When shopping for bourbons there are really three kinds – the classics you know and love, the rare classics you know and love to find and the lesser-known you need to try!
Starting with the classics – Woodford, Elijah Craig, Maker’s Mark, Weller, Buffalo Trace, Larceny, and Evan Williams. Yes, we carry each of these and we carry them in multiple sizes.
In addition to these well-known bourbons, we work diligently to ensure we can provide our customers with a selection of allocated or rare bourbons like Angel’s Envy, Elmer T. Lee, E.H. Taylor, Hancock’s Reserve, Blanton’s and Eagle Rare. These bourbons are called rare for a reason, so the quantity of each in our store will vary on any given day. However, rest assured, even if we are out of one or two of these brands, we almost always have a few of these on hand.
When it comes to the lesser-known Kentucky bourbons, there are plenty and there are plenty here to try. Our favorites of these lesser-knowns are Old Charter, James Pepper 1776 and Heaven Hill Old Style Bourbon. Old Charter is made by the same people as Blanton’s and has a great, quality taste. Each of these are good, quality bourbons. We hope you will give them a try.
Kentucky – we want to raise a glass to you for everything you have done to enhance this fine American Spirit. We are Texans and we love everything about Texas, to include Texas bourbons, but even here in the Lone Star State we acknowledge that when it comes to bourbon, Kentucky – you done good.
