We wouldn’t be here without the distillers of yore who dedicated their lives to the art of whiskey. But it’s time to push the dusty labels aside and make room on the top shelf for bourbon’s new pioneers. Our super-premium batches and infusions marry modern flavor with the same master craftsmanship shared by the greats.
Blue Run Spirits was founded as an ideal. We wanted to create a super-premium bourbon that tasted so rich and smooth it would entice a new generation of enthusiasts, as well as satisfy the most discerning aficionado. The banks of Kentucky’s Royal Spring — what cofounder Jesse McKnight called the “Blue Run” as a kid — with its pure, limestone-filtered water, seemed like the perfect place to start. After all, as the birthplace of bourbon in 1789, the Blue Run is steeped in more than two centuries of distilling history. And now, it’s where bourbon is being reborn.
The inaugural Blue Run Bourbon is an instant classic. This 113-proof small batch temptation doesn’t need gimmicks or special finishes. It’s been aged directly into its sweet spot, delivering a mature, complex whiskey that offers an endlessly layered taste.BUY ONLINE
