Blaum Bros Straight Bourbon is the entry-level expression of the core range of the Blaum Brothers distillery, opened in 2013 in a small town in Illinois. Their website explicitly states, rather ironically, that drinking whisky together was the only way for the brothers to overcome the initial difficulties in getting along together. Their first bourbon was released in 2018 and consists of 72% corn, 23% rye, and 5% malted barley. Distillation is described as searching for the “tails” that are “strangest, strongest, and dirtiest”. Maturation, of at least 3 years, takes place in grade 4 toasted barrels of 200 liters.
