Tasting Menu


Distilled at the Lawerenceburg Distillers in Indiana and bottled in Kentucky this whiskey made from rye grain is aged for at least two years in new, charred American oak barrels and bottled at 84 proof. This is the drink of our American forefathers, all but lost during Prohibition. Now part of the Rye Revival.


Bottled in Louisville, Kentucky this is one of the oldest American whiskeys founded in 1753. Mature in age and exceptional in quality, the 10 year Single Barrel Straight Bourbon is 94.4 proof  flavor with a bold dark toffee note.


Aged in charred American white oak, select Bulleit Bourbon barrels are set aside for 10 years. The result is a special expression of Kentucky Bourbon that provides a rich, deep, and incredibly smooth sipping experience.


This blended bourbon returns again to Bourbon & Blooms. This Gold Medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition offers a subtle aroma of dried fruit with hints of apricot and ripe pear. 5 keys represent the 5 steps this Kentucky Bourbon uses in distilling.
