Ole KY Water Carafe
The Ole KY Water Carafe is a miniature moonshine jug!! What more do I need to say!
Okay, I will say a little more (cause I am chatty!). This carafe is the companion to the Ole KY Neat Glass. For neat pours of Bourbon, I prefer the Scottish tradition of serving a neat pour with a small water carafe. The idea is to slowly dilute the liquor with a little water between each sip. The more water is added, the more subtle notes and aroma comes out. Think of temperature and red wine. If you have ever had red wine that was chilled for one reason or another, you would know that it is just boozy. As the wine is warmed to room temperature, the soft fruit notes, the berry, the tannins all start to become more pronounced and enjoyable. Slowly adding a small amount of water to the bourbon will have a similar effect. It allows you to really get a feeling for the character of each batch of bourbon.
This is a throwback to the days before Bourbon was bottled. During that time, an entire barrel of bourbon was sold to a saloon or bar. If you wanted to take some of the liquor home, you were given a small ceramic jug...kind of like a growler of beer today. The jug was dipped in glaze and the name and locaiton of the distillery was scratched into the glaze in cursive. That was all of the branding for the company. It was such a cool aesthetic and I want to bring that back by allowing the owner of this glass to have their name and where they are from etched into their bourbon glass and/or carafe (available in the customized version).
The Ole KY Water Carafe measures approximately 4" tall, 2.75" wide.
Hand washing is recommended.
