E.H. Taylor Amaranth Grain Of The Gods Bourbon is one of many versions crafted by E.H. Taylor and still produced at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. This smooth and splendid bourbon was crafted from Mash Bill #1, like other great spirits such as Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, and George T. Stagg. It has a lower content of rye, than mash bill #2. It is rich and complex with prominent notes of grain mingled with a sweet blend of butterscotch. The taste on the palate is luscious with notes of caramelized dark berries. The finish is cool with bold notes of spearmint and pecans on the finish.
E.H. Taylor Amaranth Grain Of The Gods Bourbon is crafted by a true innovator whose vision was ahead of his time. In 1869, E.H. Taylor acquired a small distillery located in Frankfurt Kentucky on the edge of the Kentucky River. It was originally named The Old Fire Copper Distillery. There he began renovating and modernizing the plant by purchasing copper fermentation tanks, new grain grinding equipment, and unique, columnar stills. During his time there, Taylor implemented several innovative distilling techniques, including aging whiskey in climate-controlled Rick houses. Other distilleries weren't aging their bourbon, they were adding juices and syrups to sweeten their bourbon, while others added acid and tobacco. Instead, E.H. Taylor used his distilling experience and political pedigree, to partner with Treasury Secretary John G. Carlisle. Together they were instrumental in changing history. In 1897 they passed the Bottled-In-Bond Act. This meant that any spirit labeled as "Bonded" or "Bottled-in-Bond" must be the product of only one distiller, one distillery, during one distillation season. Additionally, the Act required that bonded spirits were supervised by the U.S. government for at least four years and to be bottled at least 100 proof, in federally bonded warehouses. This fine bourbon is crafted from hand-selected barrels and is bottled directly from the barrel at more than 125 proof. It represents the way bourbon was produced in the days before Prohibition when Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was the owner of Buffalo Trace Distillery.
