    Quick Overview

    An earthy rye with some attractive spice elements. The rye grain really shines through on this 8 year old expression. Adding a splash of water brings out the mint notes with classic caramel and maple syrup notes emerging on the finish. Sip neat. Enjoy!

    For the Willett family, distilling craft whiskey is a family tradition. John David Willlett began distilling at the Moore, Willett & Frenke Distillery just outside of Louisville, Kentucky, during Reconstruction. In 1898, his son, A. Lambert Willett — who was just 15 years old at the time — began apprenticing with his father. Eventually, Lambert purchased a farm on the outskirts of Bardstown, Kentucky and began construction of the Willett Distilling Company in the spring of 1935. While Willett Distilling Company eventually changed its name to Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, the family tradition lives on. Even Kulsveen, owner of KBD, is Willett's son-in-law.In keeping with family tradition, Kulsveen has sourced a mean straight rye whiskey (he also just released a rye whiskey that he distilled). Aged for eight years and bottled at cask strength, it has a dark copper color, along with a strong, spicy aroma. Hints of brown sugar, dark chocolate and coffee beans subtly complement bold notes of rye, buttered biscuits and caramel. The finish is lush and intense, with touches of cloves, ginger and a hint of smoke.
