We use the best aged White American Oak staves from the Ozarks in Missouri at the Independent Stave Company. We selected a cooperage to assemble our barrels in Louisville, Kentucky that has 55 years of time-tested coopering techniques. All Three Chord Bourbons are aged in Number 4 Char (Alligator) barrels.
We filter our water through reverse osmosis, one-micron filter that creates the cleanest, purest water possible.
The longer whiskey ages, the more the wood takes over the flavor profile. Our 12-year-old whiskey in the blend helps create that smooth, refined finish.
Our secondary, controlled, wood-charring process reintroduces compounds that create the maple syrup, caramel and vanilla character that consumers love. This secondary char is light, called a “toast”.
We bottle our 100% blended bourbon 300 gallons at a time, for a consistent flavor profile and quality taste.
