Discover the Gentleman's Choice: Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon

A Legacy of Smoothness

Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey stands as a paragon of the distiller's art, a testament to the vision of its namesake, a pioneering distiller who broke the mold with his high-rye mash bill. This exquisite spirit is crafted from a unique blend of 70% corn, 21% rye, and 9% malted barley, aged to perfection for over eight years in new, charred American oak barrels. It's this meticulous process that imbues Basil Hayden's with its signature light body and harmonious taste profile, making it a beacon for those who appreciate subtlety and sophistication in their bourbon.

Taste the Elegance

Basil Hayden's offers a symphony of flavors that dance on the palate with each sip. Its 80 proof embodies the perfect balance between strength and smoothness, making it the most approachable bourbon in the Beam Suntory small batch family. Delicate notes of vanilla and honey lead the way, followed by a spicy kick of pepper and rye, all rounded out with a soft caramel and apricot finish. This bourbon doesn't just whisper quality; it sings it, providing a sipping experience that is both pleasant and full of taste.

The Art of the Cocktail

Whether you're a connoisseur of the neat pour or a craftsman of cocktails, Basil Hayden's versatility shines through. Its light-bodied elegance makes it the ideal foundation for classic cocktails like the Manhattan or the Old Fashioned, where its nuanced flavors can truly come to the forefront. But it's equally at home on the rocks or sipped slowly, neat, where its complex bouquet and balanced palate can be savored to the fullest. Basil Hayden's invites you to elevate your drinking experience, transforming each sip into a moment of pure enjoyment.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
