The inspiration for GW Straight Bourbon Whiskey – comes from a much-quoted section of a speech delivered by Theodore Roosevelt at Sorbonne, in Paris France in 1909. Gordon had this quote framed. It has hung on his wall since college.
“It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
In developing BlackFork Farms GW Bourbon, is seems appropriate to dare greatness.
We are on a quest to develop GW as a $1,000 bottle of whisky. This is a journey, involving the confluence of grain, time, and wood.
The Journey involves both art and science. We honor tradition yet embrace technology. The Art of checking the “nose” and taste of the whiskey as it flows from the towering copper condensers of our handmade Irish pot stills, and the Science of our state-of-the art Programable Logic Controller (PLC), which precisely manages temperatures and flow rates throughout the distillery. We use Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) technology to map the profile of each spirit.
Some may question, can the BlackFork Farms Team of Artisans create such a splendid bourbon, that will fetch such a premium price?
We dare to try.
GW is a Straight Bourbon Whiskey bottled at 46.5% Alcohol by Volume
