Basil Hayden's Bourbon, 70cl
Late in the 18th century, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. left his Maryland home for the greener pastures of Kentucky, bringing his family and reputation with him.
Not yet privy to the old guard’s ‘rules’ of bourbon, legend has it that Basil set out to make a batch simply using the ingredients he had on hand, unaware of what the traditionalists might think of his mash. What resulted was a bourbon with a uniquely high-rye mashbill, combining the sweetness of corn with the spicy undertones of rye.
Over 200 years later, the Noe family pays tribute to Basil’s masterful discovery with a high-rye, small batch bourbon that embodies the spirit of that very first recipe.
Basil Haydens is a unique prospect, a lighter style of Bourbon, it's perfect for anyone who enjoys their whisk(e)y a bit more on the laid back side, subtle, smooth & effortlessly drinkable, it looks the part too & makes an ideal entry for anyone who is getting in to whisky of any sort.
