Merica Bourbon was created by military veterans who love freedom and love bourbon. And since there is nothing more American than a bottle of whiskey, they decided to make their own and share that authentic American spirit with others. They started with their own unique mash bill of 70% corn, 26% rye, and 4% wheat, created at the old Seagram’s factory in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. They even use water sourced from the aquifers of the Ohio River Basin for a crystal clear, pure taste.
After the whiskey has been distilled, they ship it off to Charleston, South Carolina, where they reduce the amount of “harsh-tasting congeners” and converts acids into esters, using some kind of patented ultrasonic energy and oxygenation process, ensuring no “chemical reactions from the fermentation stage” are left undone. It’s a bit scientific to get into, but the result is a very smooth-tasting drink that doesn’t waste any of the grain and turns it all into alcohol.
Merica Bourbon won Silver at the Whiskies of the World Competition in 2017. It’s a smooth, relaxing drink with all the authentic American flavor you could want. And if you like supporting Made-in-America, Veteran-owned brands that take pride in their country, there’s no better whiskey option than Merica Bourbon. From the backstory to the vintage American label, it’s as American as it gets.
