A handful of bourbon for William Grant & Sons
Scottish family business launches its first in-housebrand, Fistful of
The Scottish company's first "from the ground up" American whiskey is a of five straight bourbons – literally a handful – each aged in for at least two years and selected according to their individual profiles. Hence its name: Fistful of Bourbon!
100% Straight Bourbon
Fistful of Bourbon is a 100 percent straight American whiskey composed by Brian Kinsman and Kelsey McKechnie after a variety of straight from all over America. As one would expect from a full-bodied bourbon, the has five distinct flavours: balanced and sweet; green, leafy floral notes; soft spices and hints of nutmeg; buttery toffee; cinnamon and liquorice.
First Texas, then the whole world
"There is an art and science to blending – and Fistful is a successful balance of both," says Blender McKechnie. "Our creative process combined the art of nosing along with our vision for whiskey and the science of blending different bourbons to create a unique taste." Bottled at 45% , Fistful of Bourbon will be launched exclusively in Texas this week for around US$25 (750 ml) before it will gradually be available throughout the USA and the rest of the world.
Fistful of Bourbon is the second American whiskey brand by William Grant & Sons, which also owns Tuthilltown Spirits , the producer of Hudson whiskey, in New York.
