Try our New Boubon Chips:
These chips are taken from the actual barrels used for maturing the famous bourbons.
Jim’s Bourbon Chips are made from genuine Jim Beam barrels,
Jack’s Bourbon Chips from Jack Daniels barrels,
& Gobbler’s Bourbon Chips from Wild Turkey barrels.
They are simplicity itself to use. Simply add half the contents of the 50g pack to 2 litres of carbon filtered spirit at 40% stirring once a day for 10 days. Drain off the spirit through cotton wool in a funnel.
The Bourbon may be drunk straight away however, you can further enhance the flavour by adding 1 sachet of Still Spirits Classic American Bourbon. One sachet of American Bourbon would normally flavour only 1.125 litres of spirit, but in this case where the Bourbon chips have already added some flavour, the sachet is best used for 2 litres. For other taste variations see below.
|Jim's||Top Shelf Kentucky Bourbon||Half a bottle||2 litres|
|Jim's||Top Shelf Classic American Bourbon||One sachet||2 litres|
|Gobbler's||Top Shelf Classic American Bourbon||One sachet||2 litres|
|Gobbler's||Top Shelf Bourbon||Half a bottle||2 litres|
|Jack's||Top Shelf Classic Tennessee Bourbon||One sachet||2 litres|
Please note that the chips are a natural product and may vary from batch to batch. You should always taste test the product and adjust to taste if required.
To get an extra batch of spirit from the chips, add all the used chips to a further 2 litres of spirit and repeat the process, this time leaving for up to 3 – 4 weeks, this will make an extra 2 litres of bourbon.
The used chips can be used as smokers on a BBQ to smoke meat or in a fish smoker to add a unique flavour.
Here’s another fantastic recipe devised by our friend Mark
OLD BOOMER BOURBON:
Here’s a fantastic recipe from one of our army of keen “spirit blenders”. It’s really interesting to do because you make 3 different bourbons, age them on oak then blend them together & then age it some more.
The end result is a superb smooth, perfectly oaked bourbon that drinks beautifully just as it is.
Half a Packet
|Top Shelf Classic American Bourbon||2 sachets||2.35 litres|
1 Heaped tablespoon
|Top Shelf Classic Tennessee Bourbon||1 sachet||1.125 litres|
|American oak (raw)
2 heaped tablespoons
|Top Shelf Kentucky Bourbon||15ml||1 litre|
Make each of the 3 recipes above & allow each one to age with the oak for 3 weeks. Strain & blend them all together.
You can drink this wonderful blend straight away but if you age it for a further 4 weeks, the oak softens out absolutely beautifully
