About small-batch bourbon
When you're looking at a bottle of bourbon, you might notice that some of them include the words "small-batch" on them. What does that mean exactly? Although there is no federal definition of what small-batch bourbon is, most industry insiders agree that the bourbon is made from a relatively smaller and limited number of barrels and then combined to make a liquid that goes into the same bottle.
Whereas each batch of more common bourbons such as Jim Beam and Maker's Mark are produced in thousands of barrels, many small-batch bourbons are made in batches of 20 barrels or fewer. That way, these hand-picked and prized barrels have a greater influence on the final blend, giving a more premium product.
Don't confuse small-batch bourbons with single barrel ones, as they're two different types of alcohol. A single barrel bourbon is one that's bottled directly from a single oak cask, which means that one barrel produced between 150 to 200 bottles depending on its evaporation and proof. Single barrel bourbons have more variation than small-batch ones since every barrel can taste differently depending upon how the liquid is combined inside the barrel. With small-batch bourbon, the higher number of barrels makes the product more consistent without much variation.
