Everyday sipper with some great flavors up its sleeve.
Ezra Brooks, conceived and forged in Kentucky, has been making happy hours happier with bona fide American Bourbon since the King sang about loving too much (it's 1957). The brand was created by Frank Silverman in Lawrenceburg until the business went under in the 1970s. In 1993, Luxco reanimated the beloved Whiskey-maker and moved it to Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown. The amber Spirit is born in a 43-foot custom copper still, and it ends up in new charred oak barrels at 125 Proof max. Although its older brothers boast about tradition, Ezra Brooks had a couple of cameos in Hollywood: there's a billboard in The Sting with Newman and Redford, while Gary Oldman grabs a bottle of Ezra Brooks in Léon. It's a true American star with real roots.
Ezra Brooks Black Label Bourbon is a well-balanced, award-winning 80 Proof daily sipper sourced from Heaven Hill. They’re keeping its age a secret, but we know the mash bill: 78% corn, 12% rye, and 10% malted barley. As all Ezra Brooks juices do, this Bourbon went through the Lincoln County Process (charcoal filtering) to emphasize the character of the charred white oak barrel. It’s excellent as a daily tipple, a reliably good cocktail base, and a gateway Bourbon for those guests who usually sip on something else (for some reason). Fantastic value, we tell ya!
