Cody Road Bourbon Whiskey
In 1846, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody was born in Le Claire, Iowa. On his journey down the “road of life”, he inspired and entertained many. Cody Road Bourbon is named in his honor.
We put a unique signature on this spirit. You may not know that over 90% of American whiskies are made by 8 distilleries. While they make great whiskies, there are a lot of similarities. We feel craft distilling is at the same point that craft brewing was 15-20 years ago when the market saw only beer and light beer. Then the small guys introduced new and exciting flavors that changed the face of beer in this country. We want to be part of a similar revolution in spirits.
This bourbon is made form a mash of 70% corn from Le Claire, 20% wheat from Reynolds, IL and 10% unmalted barley from Davenport, IA. It is aged for two years in newly charred 30 gallon oak barrels, about half the size of a traditional whiskey barrels at a lower proof than typical.
