Blanton's - Elite But Not Elitist

Apr 23, 2024
The best stuff out there is usually hard to get your hands on, amirite? And that is certainly the case with Blanton’s… Blantons’… Blantonses releases. If you’re located in one of the 17 control states, Blanton’s may be as rare as getting that damned McDonald’s Monopoly Mayfair card. How many double Whopper Happy Meals do I need to consume to finally get that last piece?? I digress. But for those residing in the non-controlled states, Blanton’s is as plentiful as the 2023/24 winter rains. That’s right, here in California, YouBooze has you covered for your Blanton’s needs!

Why Blanton’s Is so Special?

Blanton's stands out as a truly special bourbon for several reasons, not least its pioneering status as the original single barrel bourbon. This designation marks Blanton's as a leader in the industry, offering a unique profile for each barrel, which in turn captivates aficionados who seek a one-of-a-kind tasting experience with every bottle. Each bottle of Blanton’s is a testament to meticulous craftsmanship, featuring distinct notes and character that vary from barrel to barrel.

Despite increasing production in recent years, Blanton's continues to be a rare find on the shelves. This scarcity is largely due to demand consistently outpacing supply, a testament to its reputation and quality among bourbon lovers. The distillery is committed to enhancing production capabilities, yet fans might still find Blanton’s Single Barrel missing from stores at times. This rarity is compounded by the essential aging process—good bourbon simply takes time to reach perfection, and Blanton’s adheres to no shortcuts in crafting its renowned spirits.

Moreover, legal constraints prevent the direct sale of Blanton’s to consumers, adding an additional layer of exclusivity. This combination of exceptional quality, increasing demand, and limited availability ensures that each bottle of Blanton’s is not just a purchase but a prized acquisition for those lucky enough to find it.
