The whiskey ended up being made by many distilleries over time and the brand name morphed into "Old Log Cabin". To this day the Cabin shaped bottles and dozens of knock-offs command some of the highest prices in collectible Americana glass.">
Copper & King's American Brandy aged in a Woodford Reserve barrel and bottled at cask strength. Cask strength brandy is nearly unheard of, and this brandy knocked our socks off. Blind tasted, you would be hard pressed to discren the difference between this and a delicious bottle of whiskey. A MUST TRY!!!

We sampled many barrels of bourbon to look for the flavors that would combine to make an excellent blend.
From the older Kentucky barrels the flavors of caramel, leather, and wood, with a touch of rose become prevalent.
From Indiana barrels the flavors of soft cherry, a nice mid palette feel and a touch of floral are found.
From Tennessee bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla, and ripe banana are gained.
The Colorado bourbons bring spice such as cinnamon which are found from the bloody butcher corn, and honeysuckle from the Olathe region sweet corn.">
