Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Bright Lights, Big Bourbon is a bold, grain-forward, no-holds-barred straight bourbon whiskey. Distilled from New York corn and aged in new charred American oak barrels, with notes of rich vanilla and lightly salted caramel on the finish, it shines brighter than the rest.View all products by HudsonCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

This is one of my favorite bourbons, smooth with just the right taste and a very reasonable price. Also, it is made right here in my state, NY. I usually drink it straight after dinner.

Tasted unaged, like corn sweet feed for cattle.

Hudson 'Baby Bourbon' Whiskey is my all time fav. Bold + smooth. It's the perfect gift for a Whiskey enthusiast!
This has become my favorite go-to bourbon. I prefer to have it neat, but I’m sure it plays well in cocktails (for mixing I usually go with lower-priced options). I also like that it is from New York so I am bringing it to my whiskey-loving friends as souvenir.

We came across this in Tennessee of all places - a bar that fancied a large number of bourbons from all around. It has become our “go to” bourbon - smooth and aromatic

My all time favorite - big, bold flavor, NY style!
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
