Aperol originated in 1919 in Padova, Ital. It was a product of the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11% alcohol. Today Aperol has become a classic apéritif and increasingly popular in cocktail recipes around the world. Bright orange in color it has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. An infusion of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona combined with herbs and roots create a perfectly balanced elixir. Aperol is milder in flavor and half the alcohol content of its Campari cousin.
Together with 3 parts of Prosecco, 2 parts of Aperol and a dash of seltz, Aperol makes the perfect Spritz -the irresistible Italian Aperol Spritz.
Basil Hayden's Bourbon dates back to 1796, when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created a recipe unlike any other. He used a traditional corn base, but mixed in small grains in his mash to capture the spicy flavor of rye and complement the sweet smoothness of corn. More than 200 years later, Basil Hayden's is a singular bourbon that bridges the flavor of rye whiskies and small batch bourbons together. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails.
In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of bourbon history. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the Distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of bourbon. From the time he was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day. During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon - his private reserve - handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives. Introduced in 1984, Blanton’s namesake bourbon was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon sold commercially. The Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.

In the 1830s, as a tavern keeper in Louisville, Kentucky, Augustus Bulleit set himself on a mission: to create a Bourbon unique in flavor. Just as Bourbon lovers today may sample many brands before finding their favorite, Augustus decided to experiment, too — by creating Bourbons of many different types and tastes. After countless small-batch trials, he came upon a Bourbon with the character he had been seeking. While transporting barrels of his Bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans, Augustus Bulleit vanished. What happened to him is still unknown, and his creation could have vanished as well. But after more than a century, in 1987, his great-great-grandson Tom Bulleit stepped in. A lawyer by profession, Tom's lifelong dream had been to revive the family’s Bourbon legacy that started more than 150 years ago.
Bulleit Bourbon is made by following the small-batch technique inspired by Augustus Bulleit. Only the highest quality ingredients are used. This Bourbon's subtlety and complexity stem from its unique blend of rye, corn and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast. Because Bulleit Bourbon is especially high in rye content, it has a bold and spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. This russet colored Bourbon has hints of oak and spice with a crisp, clean flavor that feels smooth in the throat with notes of vanilla and honey. We recommend sipping it on the rocks with a splash of ginger ale.
