Over 100 years ago, Kentucky bourbon was made by men so possessed with a spirit of grit and hustle that they ascended above men, and became Barons. Sadly, Prohibition and the rising tide of time has robbed us of the families’ signature bourbon recipes. Until now.
Enter “The Whiskey Barons Collection”, an ambitious undertaking to recreate the taste of the original Pre-Prohibition liquids. Each expression in “The Whiskey Barons Collection” is a masterpiece, as most of the original recipes have been lost to the ravages of time. They have painstakingly pieced these vanished gems back together by consulting original tasting notes from historical files, finding old product descriptions from packaging, and interviewing surviving family members. Each bottle of this premium, small-batch bourbon is more than a recreation of the amber glory that once coursed through the Kentucky area — it’s a direct link back to the high-toned and honorable Barons that made it.
William Butler Saffell began distilling as a teenager. With his grit, determination, and reputed hand-made sour mash, it wasn’t long after, in 1889, that he built his first distillery. What resulted was a delicate, golden Kentucky Bourbon, first created northwest of Lawrenceburg, that became a treasure of pre-prohibition America. Saffell himself may have said it best when he remarked, “My own small product is not excelled by any.” Crafted to stand apart, this non-chill filtered offering is a blend of 6, 8, 10, and 12 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon. It delivers a complex spice, caramel & wood flavor along with notes of creamy vanilla & dried fruit. Recreated to deliver every bit of that pre-prohibition, straight-from-the-barrel flavor, this genuine piece of bourbon heritage won’t be around for long. Only a limited number are available, so own a piece of history before they’re gone forever.
