Distillery[]

The Willett family originated in France and honed their art distilling brandy. In the 1600s they brought their knowledge to the American colonies, settling finally in Bardstown, Kentucky, the bourbon center of the world where they helped develop some of the best known distillories. In the 1900s, they decided to build their family named and operated distillery named "The WIllett Distilling Company. Today, the distillery is the home of Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, Ltd, and is still headed by a member of Willett family.


Willett Straight Rye, Rare Release[]

This rare release of Willett Rye has been aged in white oak casks for five years, and hand bottled at cask strength from a single barrel. Inviting aromas of spice, vanilla, caramel and butterscotch lead to a bold, peppery palate enhanced by hints of cinnamon, tobacco and clove. Each bottle is labelled with the barrel number and variation between the barrels is likely to occur.
