EJ Curley Small Batch Bourbon
EJ Curley's signature Small Batch Bourbon is a well-balanced blend with notes of wild honeysuckle, magnolia and earthy tobacco. This bourbon provides the perfect pour every time.
One of Bourbon’s original tastemakers, E.J. Curley coined the term “Bluegrass” and founded his namesake brand, E.J. Curley & Co, along the Kentucky River Palisades in 1867. Curley was a prolific marketing maven and quickly issued additional brands including Blue Grass Bourbon, Boone’s Knoll Bourbon, and Curley Rye. His exceptional brand creating mind was matched only by his business acumen as evidenced by a single sale of 8600 barrels to a buyer in Chicago for a modern-day equivalent of $19M-the largest bourbon sale ever recorded in that time. In 1902, he formed the Distillers Securities Corporation in NYC which controlled the great majority of Kentucky Bourbon production.
The distillery honors Curley today by bringing to market expertly handcrafted small batch and single-barrel bourbon expressions hand selected by Master Blender, Ashley Barnes.
