What can we say about Kentucky bourbon? It's affordable, delicious and perfect for just about any occasion. Willett Distillery continues the bourbon tradition in the United States while also producing some of the best rye whiskey out there.
Believe it or not, the Willett family traces its roots all the way back to 1684 London. Edward Willett was a pewterer, but his family moved to the United States, settled in Maryland and eventually found their way to Bardstown, Kentucky — the birthplace of Willett Distillery.
What resulted was an array of full-bodied, aromatic whiskies and bourbons that we still enjoy today. It's somewhat hard to find in your local liquor store, but you can always stock up here on Drizly. What's better than delicious bourbon or whiskey delivered straight to your front door?
If you're looking for a gift for a whiskey-loving friend, pick up the Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon. It comes in a bottle that looks like it might contain a genie, but what you find inside beats three wishes any day of the week. It's not too bitter and not too sweet, which makes it highly drinkable.
Many aficionados are also partial to the Kentucky Vintage Bourbon. It's light but highly complex and full of flavor.
