Rowans Creek is stored in charred oak barrels. It is hand bottled at 50.05% alc./vol. (100.1 proof). Rowans Creek is made and bottled by hand, in small lots, one batch at a time. This Bourbon takes its namesake from the creek that still runs through our distillery. Back in the late 1700s when John Rowan first settled around Bardstown, whiskey makin was the order of the day. John went on and made a name for himself as a well respected judge and statesmen. The judge is long since gone, but the creek that still bears his name is still carrying the best limestone spring water there ever was for making good Bourbon, so you know the whiskey makin is still going on. Try a sip of it, straight up in a snifter, or add a dab of branch water if you like. Either way, its the very best there is.
