Old Whiskey River??? Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a handcrafted small batch bourbon made from American corn, barley and rye, grown on family owned and operated farms located within 100 miles of the distillery. Our smooth and rich flavor comes from more than eight generations of experience and dedication that our master distillers, Parker and Craig Beam, pour into every bottle. Handcrafted in small batches, using the naturally purified waters of Kentucky limestone and choice grains from independent family farms, Old Whisky River is aged for six years in new, charred American oak barrels and adheres to the highest Bourbon standards.
Old Whiskey River was made especially for an American original, Willie Nelson. So we wanted to get his input every step of the way. From the brand name to the label and most importantly, what’s inside the bottle. We sent samples to him while he was touring on the road to get his thumbs-up on the different batches until we finally came up with a bourbon that he’d put his name on, one that he calls smooth, sweet and mellow. Old Whiskey River vowed to follow the lead that Willie started with Farm Aid, so we always purchase our grains from independently owned family farms. It’s only fitting that an American original like Willie Nelson would put his name on Old Whiskey River — that’s why there’s an autographed guitar pick on every bottle, and he asked us to be the exclusive sponsor of his concert tour. By following age old whiskey-making traditions and partnering with the one and only, legendary Willie Nelson, Old Whiskey River??? is one of a kind… a true American original.
