Bourbon and barbecue have a lot in common. They take care and patience, but the end result is always worth it. Because great things take time. That’s why we age our bourbon for a minimum of four years, and creating our family recipe took much longer. After 225 years of crafting our time-honored recipe, we understand every ingredient plays a part in making something truly special. Just like family and friends coming together to make a barbecue night something extraordinary. Whether we’re waiting for our next batch or you’re waiting for the smoker, the moments in between are meant to be enjoyed. So pull up a chair next to the fire pit, share a story or three, and take in the moment. Who needs a fancier grill when you have a bigger table?
