Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey with a touch of our own farm raised honey. A rich nose of caramel, honey and vanilla leads to a delicate balance of floral, herbal and nutty cocoa notes. With a smooth, refined not overly sweet finish.

DSP-KY-10

 

Humblebee Bourbon is distilled in Owensboro, KY in DSP-KY-10. Issued the 10th distillery license in KY, DSP-KY-10 opened it's doors as the Green River Distillery in 1885. This storied distillery in Owensboro has been producing Bourbon and Rye for nearly 130 years. Today the distillery stands proud as the westernmost location on the famed Kentucky Bourbon trail.

 

Over the years, the distillery has been subject to numerous transformations and setbacks such as ownership changes, fire, prohibition, and bankruptcies. In 2014, the property was purchased and industry experts were brought in to resurrect the distillery back to and beyond its former glory. Through extensive renovation that perfectly melded the site’s historic and traditional components with the best and most efficient distilling equipment, the distillery is once again vibrant and producing some of the best Bourbon and Rye available today.

 

Today, we continue the tradition of producing fine Kentucky Bourbon and Rye under the watch of 3rd generation Master Distiller Jacob Call, using only locally sourced Kentucky grown corn and oak char barrels. What’s more, the natural limestone in the local water that adds minerals to promote fermentation, coupled with the dramatic extremes of Kentucky weather, complete the recipe for making so many of the best Bourbons and Ryes on the market. It is in fact true that the best Bourbon in world comes from Kentucky.

Humblebee Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey has a subtle honey note that will add a warm sweet overtone to classic bourbon cocktails.
