Bottle In-Bond edition of Excelsior Bourbon
Excelsior, New York’s state motto, means “Ever Upwards,” and our Excelsior Straight Bourbon is made exclusively from Hudson Valley grains, and then aged in a New York-coopered barrel of Hudson Valley oak. The Bottled-in-Bond release of the Excelsior Straight Bourbon fulfills our mission of creating spirits of historic significance.
The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 was one of the first consumer protection laws in the United States, and mandates (among other things) that the whisky be made, aged, and bottled by the distillery on the label.
As with all of Coppersea’s “Heritage Methods Distilled” products, we mash Excelsior Bourbon Bottled In-Bond in open-top fermenters for additional local terroir, twice-distill in True Fire Copper, direct-fired simple alembic stills, and barrel age our spirits at the ultra-low proof of 105.
