About Willett Family Estate 6 Year Old Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Today, Even Kulsveen, Thompson Willett's son-in-law and the owner of Willett Distilling Company, continues to shepherd the family legacy forward, releasing Kentucky bourbon and rye whiskeys. In 2012, the renovated distillery opened its doors and the pot still became operational for the first time. The Willett Family Estate 6 Year Old is produced with a wheated bourbon mash bill. The single barrel no. 6601 has spent its 6 years in hand-selected American white oak before being bottled at 127.2 proof. You can expect a big, bold, complex, and pleasantly sweet whiskey with vanilla, caramel, and spice notes.

For the Willett family, distilling craft whiskey is a family tradition. John David Willlett began distilling at the Moore, Willett & Frenke Distillery just outside of Louisville, Kentucky, during Reconstruction. In 1898, his son, A. Lambert Willett — who was just 15 years old at the time — began apprenticing with his father. Eventually, Lambert purchased a farm on the outskirts of Bardstown, Kentucky, and began construction of the Willett Distilling Company in the spring of 1935. While Willett Distilling Company eventually changed its name to Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, the family tradition lives on. Even Kulsveen, the owner of KBD, is Willett's son-in-law.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
It's a big and bold bourbon with vanilla, caramel, spice, and leather aromas. The pleasantly sweet palate has honey, vanilla, orange zest, and a touch of black tea. The long finish has lingering baking spice and orange notes with a hint of mint.
