Knob Creek Bourbon

Since some of my favorite cocktails call for bourbon whiskey, I’m always looking to try new bourbon bottles, especially when they’re at reasonable prices. And, a name I saw repeatedly mentioned online was Knob Creek Bourbon, so I was excited to try it for myself.

Knob Creek was first introduced in 1992 by distiller Booker Noe, a descendent of famous bourbon distiller Jim Beam, and meant as an homage to pre-prohibition era bourbon.

The Arechabala Family produced the rum until the Cuban Revolution in the 1960’s, and the new government nationalized rum production. Arechabala soon left cuba for the United States. Cuba continued selling rum with the […]

Bulleit Rye Whiskey

It feels like I see a Bulleit Frontier Whiskey bottle in every bar I visit, so it immediately came to mind when I was looking for a new whiskey to try. And, since I’ve also been looking to gain more experience with rye whiskey, now seemed like a great time to check out Bulleit Rye. Bulleit is a relatively new American whiskey company that was founded in 1987 by Tom Bulleit. Ownership of the brand has changed hands a few times, but it’s currently owned by International spirit company, Diageo. I was surprised at the lack of information about the brand history or the founder on the official Bulleit website, but it’s probably because of […]
