About Basil Hayden
In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. broke 'the rules' by mixing small grains into the mash of a traditional corn base. A Maryland transplant unafraid to stand out amidst the residing establishment, Basil conjectured that the spicy flavor of rye would be a striking complement to the sweet smoothness of corn in his distillery's standard bourbon. And much to the chagrin of the traditionalist set, Basil was right. His recipe was a masterpiece, resulting in a unique, singular small batch bourbon whiskey that was blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.

Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's® is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden's® is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.  Read More

Recipe Spotlight: Historic Bourbon Cocktails for President’s Day

 

 

The best way to commemorate our Presidents - both past and present - is by raising a toast with Super Premium, American-made bourbons like Basil Hayden's and Knob Creek.

 
• Kentucky's own Basil Hayden’s Bourbon was first distilled when the state itself was just four years old and George Washington was in office! For a refreshing creation made with a truly American spirit, try mixing up this spicy, handcrafted cocktail on February 16th: Basil Hayden’s Presidential Spice. It's made with Basil Hayden's trademark spicy finish and Madeira, which was a favorite of President Thomas Jefferson!

 
• Named after a creek that ran by Abraham Lincoln's childhood home, Knob Creek's signature bourbon is perfect for celebrating our nation's history this President's Day. Made Pre-Prohibition style, it works well as a base to the Old Fashioned cocktail, as its higher proof and big, full flavor is able to stand up to the other ingredients in the cocktail. The Knob Creek Liberty Minted Old Fashioned recipe hails from Philadelphia, PA, and offers a refreshing twist on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail.
