GREEN RIVER KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
Kentucky Straight Bourbon / 45% ABV / 750ml
Green River Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is 90 proof and aged onsite at some of the oldest warehouses in the state.

The higher rye content contributes warming spice notes on the nose and palate.
About the Brand
Originally founded in 1885 by J.W. McCulloch, Green River Distilling Co. (DSP-KY-10) is the 10th oldest licensed distillery in Kentucky. The brand quickly became synonymous with quality and regarded as some of the finest bourbon in Kentucky. Known as "the Whiskey Without Regrets," the brand enjoys a long, rich history as the official medicinal whiskey of the U.S. Marine Hospital and has been referenced as the most expensive whiskey ever sold - 20 barrels were once traded for an interest in a Colorado gold mine before fire and prohibition relegated the brand to history. Reestablished in 2022, Green River Distilling Co. is a proud citizen of Owensboro, Kentucky and serves as the westernmost outpost of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ™. Green River is part of Bardstown Bourbon Company, a top 10 distiller in the U.S.
