Three Chord Bourbon Whiskey

The Three Chord Story, as told by Neil Giraldo:

When I first began playing guitar, I realized that if I could learn to play three basic chords — the roots of the blues — feel their meaning, perfect their sound, I could have a career in music. I also recognized that the beauty of the perfect melody, the arrangement of those notes and vibrations of those tones, could impact one’s mood and elicit powerful emotions.

One night as I was sipping bourbon with friends, the conversation naturally turned to music. Sound. Vibrations. I had an epiphany: take that same philosophy of making music and apply it to blending bourbon. Use the concept of sound and vibrations that affect our hearts and souls to alter and enhance the structure of bourbon at a molecular level. Create a bourbon that embodies the influence of those three chords: balanced, bold, and Perfectly Tuned.

What did we know about bourbon? Well, we knew we loved it. Did we know if we could develop an innovative process using tonal vibrations that would create a distinctive taste profile? Maybe.

But we wanted to do more than just create another bourbon. We wanted to shake up the industry yet maintain respect for the tradition and legacy of heritage bourbons. To look at the process differently. To create a taste profile comparable to the finest bourbons in the world at a price point that is cost-effective, scalable, in a niche of its own. To craft a new classic bourbon with the same precision and passion with which I create music. The product we created is Three Chord Bourbon. The process with which it is blended we call “Perfectly Tuned Taste.”

I just ordered a bottle and it is the mail, i will taste,and comment,rate soon, Neil was my childhood neighbor.I love Bourbon,congrats on creating this Neil.



I enjoy Three Chord Bourbon because of it's versatility. I feel the upfront vanilla, nutmeg character is pleasing to sip on its own ( Add one cube if you like).  The high rye content adds hints of citrus fruit and spice. The tannin's are mild and there aren't any overpowering flavor phenols so the well balanced character is great for cocktail creation. The finish is smooth and pleasant with just a mild hug!
