Bond & Lillard Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$54.99 / 375ml
50% ABV
Batch #2
William F. Bond and Chrstopher C. Lillard partnered to create a golden, delicate style of Kentucky Bourbon -- before prohibition.
Bond and Lillard was highly revered and awarded The Grand Prize at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair
The Bond family had been distilling in Kentucky since 1820, however Bond & Lillard wasn’t born until 1869 when William F. Bond and his brother-in-law, Christopher C. Lillard, formed a partnership. This Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is 100 proof (50% alc./vol.) and charcoal filtered, a process that simulates the aeration process that happens in the barrel, converting more aggressive congeners to esters that end in more elegant top notes. The result is a lighter colored and flavored Bourbon with more floral notes. As the judges at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair declared, this recipe represents “real delicacy of flavor, beauty in the sparkle and superiority in strength – it bears no equal.”
