Aged eight years in oak barrels, this Bourbon is 107 proof with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley.
I had the pleasure of attending a recent barrel tasting party (how fun does that sound?!) by co-founders Damon Thayer and Andre Regard, and it was certainly not a bad day on the job;) These guys are having fun and enjoying the moment which is what Bourbon is all about. I enjoy seeing their passion and enthusiasm for what they are doing and creating in their brand.
There are 6 barrels in total sourced from Barton Distillery (Bardstown, KY). 5 barrels are used in a Small Batch with one honey barrel being plucked for the Liquor Barn Single Barrel Private Select. The Single Barrel will be at all 23 Liquor Barn locations, per the brand.
About The Founders
The Kentucky Senator Bourbon brand was revived in 2019 by co-founders, Andre Regard and actual Kentucky Senator, Damon Thayer. Their mantra per the brand website – They are passionate about offering the finest-tasting Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, serving up great Kentucky Bourbon with a side of Kentucky history.
The Kentucky Senator brand was originally distilled and bottled by Crigler & Crigler in Covington, Kentucky, then by Double Springs Distillers, Inc. in Bardstown. Each release of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey will carry the name of an esteemed U.S. Senator from the Bluegrass State.
