TAX STAMP NIGHT

March 2013

Bourbons that were bottled prior to 1985 had to have a tax stamp over the cap to prove that duty was paid. Several of the brands that we know and love today actually came from different distilleries during that time period. Several of those distilleries no longer exist and so we will open bottles from back in the day to see what bourbon used to be like.
