My name's Tom Abker and I'm the founder of Ridge Reserve Spirits, LLC.

I’ve been in the business for over 50 years and I decided it was time to quit looking for a good whiskey and create it myself. So I founded Ridge Reserve Spirits.

Our first release was a straight bourbon, Ridge Reserve Black Label Straight Bourbon whiskey. I thought it turned out pretty good and so did the judging panel at the Beverage Tasting Institute who rated it "Exceptional" and gave it a gold medal and 90 points.

We have released our Ridge Reserve Black Label Bourbon Mash Whiskey, recently. This is a bourbon mash whiskey for those who appreciate an even bodied, well balanced whiskey... aged in charred oak barrels, of course. Well, it's terrific, if I do say so myself. Neat or with ice, straight or with a splash, I believe you’ll enjoy the taste and the smooth, warm finish of this bourbon mash whiskey as much as I do.

We have our 6 grain, single barrel Alabama Bourbon, "Old 240" bottled, and let me tell you, it was worth all the work we've put into it. It's a limited release bourbon, and it's really something special.

Oh, hey... don't forget to try our newest release,

"Ridge Reserve 113 First Strike" Rum!

Truly a spirit for the new Millenium, every aspect of our rum’s production took place in Alabama. It's produced from 100 per cent first strike Louisiana sugar cane. Fermented in open top cypress tanks, then double pot distilled with “heart cut" distillate. Then it's barreled aged in french oak for least four years.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. I invite you to try my whiskey and let me know how you like it.
