We are really proud to introduce our new Dexter Straight Bourbon.  It’s the best bourbon we’ve ever made – named one of only 12 bourbons on the Ultimate Spirits list of the Top 100 Spirits. 

It’s named after Edmund Dexter one of the most famous pre-prohibition whiskey makers in America.

It is most often drank neat or over ice. 

However, it also makes for luxurious cocktails each with a great story…


In 1842, Charles Dickens stayed with world famous Whiskey Barrel Blender Edmund Dexter at his home in Cincinnati on fourth street. Dickens was a fan of mint juleps. The recipe below is a modernized version of a recipe he shared with fellow writer Washington Irving. The drink is a cross between a mint julep and a sour (using orange instead of the classic lemon).

  • 1 Orange Wedge 
  • 5 Mint Leaves
  • 1/2 oz of Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz of Dexter

Combine the orange, mint leaves and simple syrup in a shaker and muddle firmly. Add 2 oz of Dexter Bourbon and shake with ice for 12 seconds. Serve in a chilled coupe glass or in an old fashioned glass with fresh ice.

“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”

p.s. We sold out the first edition in January in 57 minutes.  This time we have much more – but it’s selling 5 times faster :).  If you want it – I suggest you get it sooner rather than later.
