The story of Single Barrel Bourbon started with Blanton's in 1984. In the late 1940s the now-retired Master Distiller, Elmer T. Lee remembered the days when he worked under Colonel Blanton who was the President of the distillery until 1952. Colonel Blanton would handpick quality barrels from the centre cut of Warehouse H and bottle these one barrel at a time for special occasions and VIPs. Blanton's Single Barrel is Elmer T. Lee's tribute to these glory days of Colonel Blanton and in doing so he created the worlds first single barrel bourbon.
