Cream of Kentucky is an historic brand that saw its introduction to the market at the end of Prohibition, only to be discontinued in the 1970s. Jim Rutledge - our one-time Sherpa to the world of Four Roses Single Barrels - and his partners in a new Kentucky distillery venture (J.W. Rutledge Distillery) knew they needed a brand in the market while their new golden elixir matures. With that in mind, in 2016 they obtained the rights to this historic trademark. The liquid is sourced from an unknown distillery but if we know Jim the quality and pedigree of this bourbon is as regal as any. We are thrilled to bring you the inaugural release of this legend-in-waiting. 

Unctuous tones of bright fruit, caramel, vanilla and cocoa powder leap from the glass. The palate is sublime with hints of red fruits, touches of toffee and a wisp of charred Oak. A truly beautiful glass of bourbon that you can sip on repeat.
