Timber Creek Distillery introduces whiskey industry's first Bourbon Blending Kit

Published 09 November 2016

Florida-based distiller Timber Creek has introduced the whiskey industry's first and only Bourbon Blending Kit.

The limited edition gift set features a selection of 100% single grain whiskeys and Timber Creek's Bourbon Blending Guide allowing consumers to create their own personal bourbon blend.

Bourbon lovers will have the opportunity to blend their own whiskey using an innovative process pioneered by Timber Creek to create its handcrafted small batch bourbon.

Each grain is individually milled, mashed, distilled, barreled and aged to make 100 percent single grain whiskeys. Barrels are hand-picked and the whiskeys blended to create Timber Creek's unique bourbon flavor profile.

Timber Creek Distillery president Camden Ford said: "Today's bourbon industry is dominated by a handful of large companies using mass production techniques that don't produce the same individual high-quality bourbon created by craft distilleries.  

"As a craft distillery, Timber Creek can experiment with new techniques and push the boundaries of innovation unlike large scale operations.

"Timber Creek is at the forefront of the craft spirits industry and is leading the way by offering new flavor profiles and new whiskey experiences to customers."

Timber Creek's Bourbon Blending Kit is comprised of all single grain whiskeys bottled at 100 proof, including:

750ml bottle of 100% Florida Corn Whiskey

375ml bottle of 100% Florida Wheat Whiskey

375ml bottle of 100% Florida Black Rye Whiskey

375ml bottle of 100% American Single Malt Whiskey

Together, these bottles can be blended together in scores of combinations to create virtually any bourbon flavor profile. The blending kit also provides a graduated mixing beaker, stir rod, and a graduated pipette for precise mixing and blending of the bourbon.

Timber Creek's Master Distiller Aaron Barnes said: "By leveraging tried and true techniques from the brewing and distilling industries and marrying those with a new approach and process for distilling, we are able to experiment with different flavor profiles and quickly bring distinct products to market while simultaneously focusing on quality.

"Timber Creek's objective is to bring big, bold, unique flavors to a new set of customers that want more than the low cost, highly processed generic products for mass markets. 

"With the Timber Creek Bourbon Blending Kit, we are offering customers the opportunity to blend whiskey the way they want without being limited to what is found on the shelf."

The Timber Creek Bourbon Blending Guide walks consumers through the Timber Creek process, explains how the different grains contribute to the flavor of each bourbon, and shows exactly how to blend the different whiskeys. 

Included is also a list of mash bills for many popular Bourbon brands so connoisseurs can easily replicate the recipes for their favorite bourbon.
