Colonel E.H. Taylor 18 Year Marriage Straight Bourbon Whiskey was founded by a visionary in the whiskey world with a creativity that was years ahead of its time. He founded a world class Distillery, and fought for the purity and legitimacy of bourbon gaining him the title of the “Father of the Modern Bourbon Industry.” Taylor is celebrated for the countless innovations he contributed to the bourbon industry in his time. His first involvement in the industry came as a banker, aiding in the organization and financing of several distilleries. Through his experience as a banker, Taylor became personally acquainted with several prominent whiskey makers. Taylor's 1869 purchase of a small Leestown distillery that he christened O.F.C. was his first foray into distilling, making an immediate mark on the industry by modernizing, expanding and upgrading the plant. Among his innovations were copper fermentation tanks, state-of-the-art grain equipment, column stills, modernized buildings, a more efficient sour mash technique and a first-of-its-kind steam heating system still used in the barrel warehouses today. his unique bourbon combines barrels from three signature mash bills that matured for eighteen years, including two different rye bourbon mash bills and our whetted bourbon mash bill.
