But fear not, we have a suggestion that might just make your summer one to remember. How about exploring the adventurous Bordeaux wine region in France this year? As a wine enthusiast, you may be aware of Bordeaux and its importance in the wine industry. Bordeaux is not just a place in France. Instead, it is the name that resonates with a sense of history, tradition, and unparalleled viticultural excellence. So, dear friends, allow us to take you on a journey through the vineyards of the Bordeaux wine region. In this comprehensive guide, we unravel detailed information about the Bordeaux wine region in France. In the end, we’ll mention the reasons why you should plan a vacation to Bordeaux this summer. Where is Bordeaux Located? Bordeaux is a city in the southwestern part of France. Situated on the Garonne River, it serves as the capital of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. As per the January 2020 census, the city and its suburbs boast a population of 1,376,375. Therefore, it is regarded as the sixth-most populated area in France. The city has unique geographical features, climate, culture, and, of course, a winemaking process. Speaking of winemaking, Bordeaux is also regarded as ‘A Global Capital of Wine.’ And, undoubtedly, it surely is. According to an official 2015 report, the Bordeaux wine region is home to around 60 appellations, 6,000 different chateaux, 61 grand cru classés, and over 13,000 wine growers. In 2020, the Bordeaux region produced around 440 million liters of wine (As per Jancis Robinson). This makes Bordeaux the largest wine-producing region not only in France but in the whole world. Bordeaux Wine Region: What, Exactly, is Here & How is it Divided?  Situated along the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, the Bordeaux wine region is divided into several sub-regions, each characterized by unique soil compositions, microclimates, and grape varieties. As mentioned before, the Bordeaux region consists of several appellations or legally defined wine-growing areas. Each of the appellations is renowned for a specific type of wine. However, it is worth mentioning that the Bordeaux wine region was initially particularly famous for its sweet white wines (from Sauternes appellation). It was a time of the 18th century when white wines were more popular than dry red wines. As the 19th century reached its middle, the popularity of red Bordeaux wines slowly started increasing. Primarily, the red wines were sourced from the northern side of Bordeaux. Difference Between Left Bank & Right Bank of the Bordeaux Wine Region (IMPORTANT POINT) If you have visited Bordeaux once, you might have heard of the ‘Left Bank’ and ‘Right Bank’ of the Bordeaux wine region. But how many of you know the exact meaning and difference between these two? Very few! Well, there’s nothing to worry about. Here, we have provided accurate information. Left Bank The ‘Left Bank’ is situated to the west of the Gironde Estuary and the Garonne River. It is home to several appellations, such as Médoc, Margaux, Bordeaux, Graves, and Pessac-Léognan. The Left Bank is also known for Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blends and age-worthy wines that often exhibit flavors of blackcurrant, cedar, tobacco, and graphite. Right BankThe ‘Right Bank’ is located east of the Dordogne River and is home to renowned appellations such as Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Famed for Melot-driver wines (which have lush textures & ripe fruit flavors), the right bank consists of some of the top-performing appellations and châteaux. How Many Appellations Are There in the Bordeaux Wine Region? As a wine enthusiast, you may know about Appellations. ‘Appellations are legally defined and protected geographical areas where grapes are grown, and wines are produced.’Appellations are typically characterized by specific climate, soil, and topographical features. That’s why wines produced in these areas are different and distinct. In total, there are 60 appellations within the Bordeaux wine region. Due to the availability of a diverse tapestry of appellations, the Bordeaux wine region stands tall as the biggest contributor to the winemaking sector. The names of all 60 appellations are given below. 1. Médoc2. Haut-Médoc3. Listrac-Médoc4. Moulis-en-Médoc5. Margaux6. Saint-Julien7. Pauillac8. Saint-Estèphe9. Graves10. Pessac-Léognan11. Barsac12.

Bordeaux Red wines are mainly produced in the Left Bank appellations, such as Pauillac, Saint-Julien, and Medoc. White WinesWhite wines (typically a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon Grapes) are particularly being produced in appellations such as Graves and Pessac-Léognan. Moreover, the Bordeaux wine region is also known for its world-famous sweet white wines. Rosé and Sparkling Wines:In the 18th century, the production of Rosé and Sparkling Wines was the reason behind the popularity of Bordeaux.

 Discover how Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon became a global sensation

Discover how Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon became a global sensation

As a bourbon connoisseur, the name ‘Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon’ might not be a stranger to you. Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon is one of the iconic brands in the world. And, the weird thing is, despite its low production, it commands staggering prices and remains the ultimate favorite for many enthusiasts. Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon traces its roots back to a beginning in the heart of Kentucky, the birthplace of bourbon. Established by Julian P. Van Winkle Sr. in the 19th century, the brand’s legacy spans generations, each contributing to its ability to break boundaries and continue its unparalleled reputation. You might be familiar with this information about Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, but do you know how it reached the level of success and popularity it enjoys today? No? Well, that’s not surprising. That’s why Royal Batch has crafted this comprehensive blog post, which unravels the fascinating journey of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon. ‘The Story of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon is More than Just a Tale of a Beloved Spirit; it’s a Narrative Woven with History, Craftsmanship, and a Touch of Mystery.’So, without further ado, let’s rewind to where it all began. The Story of Pappy Van Winkle BourbonBefore Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon emerged as a standalone brand, there was a vast history that many of you may not even be aware of. Let’s start from the beginning.Birth of Pappy Van Winkle and His Adulthood The family of Julian Van Winkle’ Pappy’ was Dutch people who settled in New York City in the 18th century. In 1874, Julian Van Winkle was born in Danville, Kentucky, to John Van Winkle. Julian Van Winkle’s father, John Van Winkle, was a reputable local lawyer who also served as Kentucky’s Secretary of State. After a few years, Van Winkles migrated towards the west of the US. And it was a time when Julian started showing interest in his culture and tradition. Instead of following his father’s profession, Julian always wanted to do something of his own. When he wasn’t even 20 years old, he got a job at William Larue Weller, a whiskey pioneer of his time. It was in 1893. It’s worth mentioning that William Larue Willer was the same person who helped Julian develop the wheat mash bill (which is still being used in the distillation of Van Winkle bourbons). Alongside working for William and his liquor distributors, he started traveling across the South and West as a salesman. The Passing of Weller’s Business into the Hands of Julian Van WinkleAfter William Larue Weller's death in 1909, his sons decided to pass their highly successful business to Van Winkle and Alex F. Farnsley. [Additional Information: Alex F. Farnsley.  Alex F. Farnsley played a significant role in making Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon a world-famous brand. He was a businessman and politician who later also became mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, from 1948 to 1953]After the transfer of powers, Van Winkle and F. Farnsley started sourcing liquor from a famous distillery of that time—the Stitzel Brothers Distillery in Louisville. After a few years, they attained a big ownership stake in the Stitzel Brothers Distillery. Ultimately, they renamed the Stitzel Brothers Distillery the Stitzel-Weller Distillery.During the 1920s and 1930s, Stitzel-Weller Distillery became one of the successful ventures of its time. The distillery’s signature brand, Old Fitzgerald, garnered widespread acclaim for its smoothness and distinctive flavor profile. The primary reason behind this distillery’s success is Pappy’s commitment to using only the finest ingredients and employing time-honored techniques. However, it wasn’t until after Prohibition that Pappy’s vision truly began to take shape. Following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, Stitzel-Weller Distillery resumed production with renewed vigor. In 1935, Pappy opened a new distillery in Shipley, Kentucky, to expand his empire. 1960s: Reaching the Peak and Bringing Family into the Business From the 1930s to the 1960s, Stitzel-Weller Distillery became a landmark in the liquor industry. As the 1960s started, Pappy was able to make his big empire, where he was the supreme, and he only aimed to create high-quality bourbons. During the same years, Pappy’s son, Julian Jr., joined the family business, bringing with him fresh ideas and a keen understanding of the contemporary tastes of American whiskeys. Also, Pappy’s son-in-law, King McClure, joined the team to contribute to the distillery. Even after having their son’s support, Pappy remained equally involved in the business due to his dedication to his work. However, the world lost its distillery maestro when Pappy passed away at the age of 91 in 1965. Julian Proctor Van Winkle Jr. as a Leader at Stitzel-Weller DistilleryAfter his father’s death, Julian Proctor Van Winkle Jr. came forward as an emerging leader. You may know that in the early 1970s, the popularity of bourbon was declining rapidly. As a result, Van Winkle Jr. had to sell his bourbon business in 1972. Selling his bourbon business doesn’t mean he sold everything. Only the brands were sold off; the rest of the business, including the distillery, was still running. The distillery was renamed Old Fitzgerald Distillery in 1973, but it didn’t stick around for much time as it was closed in 1992. [Additional Information: Diageo, an international beverage conglomerate, purchased Old Fitzgerald Distillery in 2014. The distillery was renovated to reopen it as a big tourist attraction. However, after a few years, the distillery was again rebranded as the Stitzel-Weller Distillery. As of now, this place is also a distillery where blends of brands like Blade and Harper are being made. The distillery is also open to visitors.] Coming back to the main story, After selling his business, Julian Proctor Van Winkle Jr. continued to sell whiskey. He even regained the rights to brand ‘Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon.’ However, he passed away soon after in 1981. In his leadership from 1972 to 1981, he made several efforts to keep the relevancy of Van Winkle’s business alive. The Emergence of Julian Van Winkle III: A Turning PointFollowing the death of Julian Proctor Van Winkle Jr, his son – Julian Van Winkle III emerged as a leader of the business. Van Winkle III always had a different approach when it came to business. Even after witnessing the low demand for bourbon in the 1980s, he decided to work on highly aged barrels. This was something that no other distillery wasn’t doing at that time. And, in 1994, there came Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve. The debut of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve was a turning point in the business. [Additional Information: The Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve featured the photograph of his grandfather (Original Pappy) enjoying a premium cigar on its label]. After debuting the 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, Julian Van Winkle III debuted several successful editions in the next few years. The lineup includes Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 15-Year-Old Bourbon, 23-Year-Old, Special Reserve, and more. With each passing year, the brand continued to reach a new level of success and popularity. New Century, New Era, & New StrategiesIn the early 2000s, Britney Spears in the music world and Van Winkle Distillery in the liquor industry were at the top of the world. Preston Van Winkle, Julian Van Winkle III’s son, joined the highly successful family business in 2001. Following year, in 2002, the brand Van Winkle Distillery entered into a contract with Buffalo Trace Distillery to produce more bourbons. The reason behind this partnership was the high demand for Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon on the market. Where Does Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Stand Today? Throughout the 2010s-decade, Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon received numerous awards and accolades from prestigious spirits competitions, making its reputation one of the world’s finest bourbons. Julian Van Winkle III is still a head of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon. In the last two decades, Julian Van Winkle III has gained the respect of critics and the general public. That’s why he was among the most awarded people in the liquor industry for a few years. Some of his notable achievements are: Recipient of the James Beard Award in 2011. Whiskey Magazine’s Hall of Fame 2017 Whisky Magazine Award Recipient Kentucky Bourbon Fall of Fame in 2022Although his son Preston Van Winkle is heavily involved in the business, Julian Van Winkle III is officially only running it. Different Expressions of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbons & One Line-Review of Each by Royal Batch’s ExpertThe brand offers several expressions, each with its own unique characteristics and aging profiles.

In the Making Moonshine Recipes History and Rebellion

Greetings, people! We're back, but this time, with a bang! Why are we saying that? If you are a fellow whiskey or liquor enthusiast, you might have guessed it from the title. Before we get into the interesting history of Moonshine whiskey, let's spare a minute or two to touch base with each other.So, how have you all been doing? The clock seems to spin faster as the days go by. So, why don't we just take a break and talk about our well-being? Sounds good? We hope you all are doing well. Let's raise a glass to the happiness & health of each other. Now, pick your favorite poison and sit down on a couch. Now that we've caught up, let's get back to our fascinating topic for the day. In this web blog, we will uncover how Moonshine came into the making process, its inviting recipes, and more.Chronicle Of the Moonshine Whiskey ( History & The Rebellion)The colorful history of Moonshine whiskey can be traced back to the whiskey rebellion in the 1790s. In the USA, Moonshine was produced in Pennsylvania for the first time. The Whiskey Rebellion was a rough tax protest that took place in 1791 in the United States. The tax was imposed by the US federal government on distilled spirits. These distilled spirits were made in rural areas in the dark moonlight, far from the reach of law enforcement. This whiskey tax was turned into law in 1791. During the 18th century in western Pennsylvania, farmers used to travel miles to sell their crops in the market. Sometimes, excessive crops like rye, wheat, corn, etc., were fermented to make whiskey, which was used as a currency for payment methods or mediums of exchange. So, these farmers were unhappy with the federal government and protested the moonshine whiskey tax. A rebellion took place; the federal government kept imposing the laws strictly, and the moonshiners stood tall against them. By 1794, the situation became more severe on the arrival of a US Marshall to summon distillers who didn't pay the tax. Over 500 people attacked tax inspector John Neville's residence. As a result, Washington sent men to make peace with the rebels and a side-by-side militia force to impose the taxes. The rebellions were long gone by then. Over the next 6-7 years, more than 170 distillers were charged for breaking the law.   History of Moonshine (Photo Source : Learn to Moonshine)The word moonshine is slang for illegally distributed high-proof liquor. Its clandestine distribution is known as bootlegging. The term was taken from its covert nature of practice. Moonshiners ( people who made Moonshine) used to do this task under the moonlight, so it became quite popular among folks. Moonshiners used to produce liquor in remote places with the help of handmade copper stills.Other nicknames of Moonshine include :Mountain Dew, Firewater, hooch, Shine, White Lightning, Bathtub gin, Rot gut etc.Even after law enforcement left no stone unturned to cease the production and distribution of moonshine whiskey during the peak of the prohibition era, the custom still persisted. Although there were strict laws against the home production of Moonshine, it became a breadwinner for many rural families in that era. Among local people, it was regarded as a form of art and craft, especially in the southern region, where handmade stills increased in hilly areas as it became a source of income for the communities.Ingredients Used for the MakingMoonshine is an unaged whiskey made with barley mash and maize corn. There was a variety of ingredients used to make Moonshine whiskey, including maize, corn, rye, sugar, and yeast. Different regions had different recipes according to the accessibility of the materials. Some customized it to their own liking. How is Moonshine Made?Now that we know what ingredients are used in the making of this marvelous liquor let's further discuss how it's prepared:This involves two processes: Fermentation : Fermentation involves breaking down yeast into sugar to give alcohol or starch through an enzymatic reaction. It's an anaerobic chemical process in which energy is released.Distillation: Distillation is the evaporation of alcohol followed by a collection of steam before condensing it in liquid form. It involves the separation of the liquids from the mixture, which then is condensed back after cooling it down.Ole Smoky MoonshineOle smoky moonshine is a corn whiskey located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They have two working copper stills in the town. Visitors were allowed to witness the production process from a closer distance. People were learning a lot about the history of the moonshine production and distribution in the Smoky Mountains. This process has been up and running for almost a century but it was only after Tennessee state law made it legal, that people were able to legally start licensed distilleries.20 Ole Smoky Moonshine recipes: Apple Pie Full MoonFrozen ShinesicleBlueberry RefresherChocolate Covered BananaSpicy Pickle MargaritaHound DogPeppermint White RussianSummer Shine Tn LuauLemon Shine-JitoCreamy Key Lime MargaritaKey Lime Coconut NightcapStrawberry Hot ChocolateWhite Chocolate, Peanut Butter, StrawberryBlueberry Maple Peach TartPina Colada SpritzerTropic SunriseKickin' Bloody MerryBanana Pudding CoffeeBuy Ole Smokey Moonshine at Royal Batch, A Leading Online Liquor Store!If you are a whiskey lover, then you must be familiar with the name Ole Smoky Moonshine.

Delve Into What Makes Bourbon And Rye Different

Have you ever wanted to explore beyond your usual bar? Want to know about a spirit steeped in American tradition? If your answer is yes, then you are at the right place because we are about to explore the Wild West of whiskey—Bourbon and Rye! These two titans of American spirits are like distant cousins sharing a rich history and a deep love for charred oak barrels. But you need to be aware! Don’t be fooled by their similarity. Bourbons like Basil Hayden Bourbon Whiskey, Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey, Yellowstone Bourbon Whiskey has a smooth, sweet charm with notes of vanilla and caramel. On the other hand, Rye like Templeton Rye, Angels Envy Rye, Pikesville Rye has a bold character with a touch of a spice cabinet and a peppery kick that will leave your taste buds tingling.So, buckle up, partner! Here at Royal Batch, we will discuss Bourbon and Rye, their distinct personalities, flavor profiles, and the perfect way to enjoy them. This is the showdown you won’t want to miss!Bourbon Vs. RyeBourbon and Rye hold a special place in the hearts and, of course, in the glasses of whiskey enthusiasts. However, both spirits cater to people with different flavor profiles and personalities. Choosing between them can feel like picking a favorite gunslinger in a western showdown—isn’t it? But you don’t have to worry because we are here to brief you about these two American whiskey giants.The Smooth Charm of BourbonBourbon is renowned for its pleasant and velvety flavor.  Bourbon is made from at least 51% maize and matured in freshly charred oak barrels. This gives it a flavor profile that frequently hints of caramel, vanilla, and toasted oak.  Its origins are traced back hundreds of years to the American South when early immigrants used readily available corn to adapt European whiskey-making processes.  Rules are essential to establishing and guaranteeing the quality and authenticity of Bourbon.  These rules specify that only recently harvested charred oak barrels may be used for aging, which greatly enhances the distinctive flavor of Bourbon.The Spicy Kick of RyeConversely, rye whisky has a strong and assertive spirit. Its signature burst of pepper and spice comes from a mash bill that includes at least 51% rye grain.  The actual percentage of Rye can change, affecting the spice is strength.  Due to its distinct flavor profile, rye whisky has seen a comeback in recent years, drawing in a new generation of drinkers.  Enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a traditional cocktail, Rye provides a distinctive and lively taste.                Breaking Down the Bourbon Top ContendersAre you ready to meet some of the leading players in the bourbon arena- Basil Hayden Bourbon Whiskey, Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey, Yellowstone Bourbon Whiskey? 1.

Exploring Different Flavors of Crown Royal to Try in Summer 2024

As a whiskey connoisseur, Crown Royal wouldn’t be a stranger to you. Crown Royal is a Canadian whisky brand renowned for its smoothness, distinctiveness, and quality. The creation of this whisky brand can be traced back to 1939. Since then, Crown Royal has evolved rightfully into one of the most iconic whisky brands globally. It is one of the rare whisky brands that has received love and appreciation from casual drinkers and critics (experts) alike. Typically, it is said that there are two reasons that have made Crown Royal the iconic brand we know today. The first reason is versatility & second is the availability of different flavors of Crown Royal. Versatility—Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks or as part of a cocktail, Crown Royal is like a Chameleon, seamlessly adapting to any setting or flavor profile it encounters.According to experts at Royal Batch, the majority of whisky connoisseurs love Crown Royal due to its ability to deliver a wide range of flavors, from rich and robust to smooth and subtly sweet. Each expression is different in its own way- a unique flavor profile, a blend of grains, an aging process & more. Can we ask you something? How many different flavors of Crown Royal you’ve tasted so far? & which one you loved more? ………………………….. (What happened? Why is everyone quiet) Okay, we got it.

This tour was special in its own way as it was Queen Elizabeth’s first visit to Canada as monarch. And, at that moment, who thought that this new whisky blend would later become one of the leading whisky brands in the world? Until 1964, Crown Royal was only available in Canada. After 1964, it started becoming available in numerous countries, including the US. Okay, so that was a little history about Crown Royal.
