All the Favorites From E.H. Taylor

May 13, 2024

If you're anything like me, hearing names like E.H. Taylor has just about as much significance as anyone with initials used in their name. C.K. Lewis? Sounds like an 18 century historian. But Louis C.K., that sounds like something different. It's interesting how putting the initials either at the end or the beginning of someone's name makes them sound 100 years older. The same is mos def true of the aforementioned E.H. Taylor.

Mr. Taylor, aka E.H. Taylor, aka Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. certainly has the historicity of someone we should trust in regards to guzzling a beverage they've produced, or in this case, handed down. Today, let's take a gander at what makes the E.H. Taylor so unique, and provide some recommendations for you initial-hating people out there. Hey, I was one of them too. Still time to change.

E.H. Taylor's Long History

Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr., often referred to as E.H. Taylor, was a prominent figure in the American whiskey industry during the late 19th century. His journey began in the 1860s when he acquired ownership of the O.F.C. Distillery (Old Fire Copper) in Kentucky. Taylor was a pioneer in bourbon production, implementing innovative techniques such as climate-controlled aging warehouses and copper fermentation tanks. His commitment to quality and tradition laid the foundation for the modern bourbon industry. After Taylor's passing, the O.F.C. Distillery changed hands several times before ultimately becoming part of the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Under Buffalo Trace's ownership, the legacy of E.H. Taylor was revitalized, with the distillery releasing limited-edition bottlings of his original recipes, showcasing Taylor's enduring influence on bourbon craftsmanship. Today, E.H. Taylor's name adorns a prestigious line of bourbons, each bottle a testament to his vision and dedication to the art of whiskey making.
