Knob Creek Bourbon Cocktails

Other bourbons stop short. We push further to get the fuller flavor, aging longer to soak up more complexities from the charred oak barrels. Then we bottle it at an uncompromising 100 proof. The way it was meant to be before corner cutters tried to make people forget what true pre-prohibition style bourbon tastes like.
