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 1860 the Prince of Wales (Future King Edward VII) stayed with the world famous Whiskey Barrel Blender – Edmund Dexter at his home in Cincinnati on fourth street.  The Prince of Wales (future King Edward VII) is credited with this cocktail in a book written by a member of the royal household. We’ve modernized it to the tastes of today. 

  • 2 oz of Dexter
  • 1 tsp. of Simple Syrup 
  • 1 tsp. of Pineapple Juice
  • Dash of Angostura or Brain Brew 1862 bitters
  • 1 oz Sparkling Water or Champagne

Combine Dexter, simple syrup, pineapple juice and bitters in a shaker. Shake with ice for 12 seconds. Serve in a chilled coupe glass or in an old fashioned glass with fresh ice.  Finish with 1 oz of sparkling wine or champagne.

To paraphrase what the future King might have said to Edmund during his visit. 

“Bourbon is not only a drinking: it is sniffing, observing, tasting, sipping at and… talking about.”



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.
