Watershed Ohio Straight Bourbon 7 Years Old
5 Grains. 7 Years.
We hand-selected this cask from Watershed Distillery in Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 2010, the distillery’s meticulous production methods, commitment to local ingredients, and innovations with grain have resulted in an impressive range of spirits.
We released our first cask from Watershed in 2021. It was a 5-year-old five-grain bourbon. This cask is its sibling: both have very similar specs, and we bought both at the same time. We bottled the first one right away. But we saved this one, tucking it away at our bottler for an additional two years. After two humid Vermont summers and two frigid Vermont winters, it is a different whiskey than it was before: deeper, more nuanced, more complex, yet still recognizably Watershed.
Made from a five-grain mashbill that includes corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, and locally grown spelt, this has a rich, full oak flavor, with notes of baking spice, vanilla sweetness, and fresh oatmeal raisin cookies. Aged for 7 years in a 53-gallon barrel, this is the oldest straight bourbon whiskey we’ve ever released, and one of the only 7-year-old releases to date from Watershed.
