Mash Bill: 60/22/18 Corn/Malted Barley/Wheat
Proof: 88 proof

St. Augustine Distillery is proud to present Florida Straight Bourbon. The grains are milled and mashed onsite, and fermented with proprietary yeast strains in closed-top fermenters. The mash is distilled in a Vendome 750-gallon stripping still, and the spent grains are sent to local farmers for cattle feed – eliminating any waste from the process. The resulting low wines are then distilled to final proof in a Vendome 550-gallon spirit still.
St. Augustine's Florida Straight Bourbon spent its entire life in premium, 53-gallon new oak bourbon barrels from Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, KY. Staves are seasoned for 18 months prior to coopering bringing enzymes to the surface which creates the ideal levels of tannins and wood sugars during the charring process. Aged in the Florida heat, the bourbon balances the heat and dryness from the barrel with the sweetness from the grain bill. The high percentage of malted barley provide note reminiscent of a single malt.
Rocks glass with one large ice cube. The addition of an orange peel is optional.
