The Details

In a Nutshell

Created in 1796, Basil Hayden's is singular Bourbon that combines the spicy flavours of rye & corn.

Tasting Notes

Golden amber in colour. On the nose this shows a lifted spicy character with notes of tea and a hint of peppermint. Dry clean palate with the light-bodied, gentle bite spice and pepper softened by a touch of honey.

Production Notes

The recipe dates back to 1796, when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created a whiskey unlike any other. He used a traditional corn base, but mixed in small grains in his mash to capture the spicy flavour of rye and complement the sweet smoothness of corn. Over 200 years later, Basil Hayden''s is a still singular bourbon that combines the distinctive flavours of rye whiskies with small batch Bourbons. Packaged in ''Prohibition style'', Basil Hayden''s is extra aged for 8 years and bottled at a relatively mild 40% abv (80 proof). The whiskey is made with twice the percentage of rye than other Beam Small Batch Bourbons, imparting a remarkably spicy, sweet character.

Producer - Jim Beam

Jacob Boehm emigrated from Germany in 1760, changed his name to Beam and settled in the bluegrass lands of old Bourbon County which was then part of Virginia (it joined Kentucky later in 1792).
