Traditionally, the bourbon proofing process takes 24-48 hours. However, we choose to do it for significantly longer (weeks instead of days) and in smaller increments to keep the liquid cool when going from barrel to bottling proof. We call this patient technique our “Slow Cut™” proofing process which is used for our flagship bourbon.
We see this critical Slow Cut™ proofing step as not only adding to the ideal “smooth and rich” character of Old Elk Bourbon, but also demonstrating our ongoing commitment to making the highest quality and smoothest bourbon whiskey without cutting any corners and giving the product the right amount time it needs to be the very best.
