J. Carver Distillery of Waconia, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the first release of J. Carver 7 Year Bourbon. This fine whiskey offers the unique flavors of Minnesota grains with the complexity of a carefully crafted, well-aged whiskey.
“Planning for J. Carver 7 Year Bourbon began several years ago, by carefully selecting our favorite barrels and holding them on-site in reserve for long term aging,” stated Bill Miller, founding partner. “Great whiskey is not exclusive to Kentucky or Tennessee. This first release of J. Carver Bourbon represents a milestone of sorts, and our extensive inventory of similarly aged barrels of other products makes us excited to plan similar releases of our other barreled spirits in the future.”
“We are excited by the interest generated by our partners throughout the spirits industry about this product,” added Gina Holman, founding partner. “J. Carver Distillery has been barreling whiskey for more than eight years, and we are gratified that our larger barrels are producing the flavors we had hoped for.” Holman continues, “our first release J. Carver 7 Year Bourbon offers intriguing and complex flavors of baked pear, caramel, brown sugar, dried orange peel, cocoa, oak, vanilla, and baking spice notes with a long, soft and smooth finish.”
