Kentucky, United States

Product description

Rowan’s Creek is another fine offering from the folks at KBD (Kentucky Bourbon Distillers). While that’s a nice name, the truth is that it’s sourced from another distillery, as KBD (also responsible for the Willett brand) has only recently begun production at their brand new distillery in Bardstown, KY. Hence, this, and other KBD bottlings, were actually distilled by another producer and bottled by KBD. Over time, most, if not all, the Willett/KBD products will be made in Bardstown. But until then, we’re not completely sure of the actual source, though the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville is a likely location with Heaven Hill as the likely distiller.

    Sweet vanilla and cinnamon notes up front with soft underpinngs of savory delight, culminating in an enjoyably warm and spicy finish. It's one of my favorite bourbons to sip neat. This whiskey is a feast for a well developed palate. Enjoy!

    Rowan's Creek was given to me as a Christmas Gift from some folks with my Son's recommendation. My Son and I usually agree 95% of the time, and we Agree this time, also. However, our agreement is that the Rowan's Creek we tasted was medicinal (at best) with a Robitussin finish. Absolutely the Most Disappointing Bourbon I've tasted in the past 5 years. The nose was medicinal, and the taste was likewise. I'll try a mixed drink with it, and if that's Not tolerable, then I'll either use it for cooking or throw away.

    If you want a great strong bourbon that’s not quite as strong as Noah’s Mill. Good for when you want to get loaded but not soil yourself.

    If you like Bulleit, you'll like Rowan's Creek. My local liquor store guy introduced it to me about 15 years ago after he returned from a Bourbon conference. He was selling it for about $15. He closed and I haven't been able to find it until now. Thank you Drizly/Wine Plus. Very nice moderately priced Bourbon though under the radar.


Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
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.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
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.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
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.
