    The Master's Collection from Woodford Reserve is a series that highlights one of five elements in whiskey production: water, grain, fermentation, distillation, and maturation. For this bottling, the 18th expression in the series, Master Distiller Emeritus Chris Morris chose to highlight the proof of the bourbon before it goes into the barrel. The maximum proof bourbon is allowed to enter a barrel is 125 proof. Woodford Reserve's standard is 110, but this bourbon was placed into the barrel at 100 proof which reflects whiskey making in the 19th century. Availability begins in select US and global markets as of February 2023. (SRP $129.99)

This bottling marks the first American single malt whiskey released by Tattersall to date. Available in, you guessed it, Minnesota and Wisconsin beginning February 2023. (SRP $45)
