An experiment gone awesome.
 
Back in the days when George Washington was the first U.S. President and Kentucky State only but 4 years old, Basil Hayden was hard at work experimenting with the inner workings of Bourbon. 
 
"You can take the boy out of Maryland, but not Maryland out of the boy?" …Mr. Hayden’s early exposure to Rye in Maryland gave rise to a certain playful curiosity. Later in Kentucky he started making corn based Bourbon but with a higher percentage of Rye, with the result being a different, smooth Bourbon that to this day remains truly distinctive. 
 
Basil Hayden's Bourbon Whiskey is aged in American oak barrels and made from a grain mixture that is more than half corn, the rest is harmony of barley and rye. To add to this there are also a number of finer ingredients that highlight the attention detail of this small batch craftsmanship, but without overly affecting its broader Bourbon appeal. Basil’s Bourbon took risks bucking the prevailing trend 200 years ago, thankfully even today it still stands out as being different and bucking away!
 
Andy Warhol "Art is anything you can get away with" was an American artist and leading figure of the visual art movement known as "Pop Art." His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement during which they flourished in the 1960s. Being creative on many fields he worked with different celebrities and rock stars too, such as Lou Reed & the Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones and many others. He lived a vivid life, nightlife included which often saw him willfully succumb to one of his favorite drinks, Bourbon
 
Is it any wonder that his lifelong city of residence, New York also gave birth to the Manhattan cocktail?
