Proof66 Notes

Breaker Port Barrel Bourbon is aged for 5 years and produced out of California and named for the breaking surf of El Capitan. They say that the aging done in Southern California adds a unique character to the bourbon. As a limited edition, they gave it an additional aging in California port barrels... a practice common in the scotch world but unusual for bourbon. They suggest looking for the additional complexity and color as a result of the port barrel.

Ascendant Spirits was founded in Santa Barbara, California in 2011 by Stephen Gertman. They regard themselves as the first (legal) distillery in the county since (the awful and backward times of) Prohibition. They use a 500 gallon small batch copper pot still (as opposed to larger scale continuous column stills), which should appeal to those who like the more subjective and artistic approach to spirits distillation.
