Have you ever wondered what the name Ten High means, as in the bourbon formerly known as Hiram Walker's Ten High? I just found out recently. It meant the bourbon bottled as Ten High was from the tenth rick in the warehouse and higher, because everybody knew the best bourbon came from the higher part of the warehouse.

Barton, which owns Ten High now, still ages iits bourbon in the upper part of its warehouses. The lower parts are for its Paul Masson brandy.
