New Release to Kentucky: Brush Creek Distillery Straight Bourbon

By The Bourbon Flight

Brush Creek Distillery, set in the one-of-a-kind epicurean center of world-renowned Brush Creek Ranch, announced the first line of Brush Creek bourbon consisting of, Brush Creek Straight Bourbon and Brush Creek Straight Rye, is now available in liquor stores, restaurants, and bars across Kentucky.

The Distillery, which is quickly becoming known for its distilling, blending, and collaboration programs, is pleased to share its first batches of Straight Bourbon and Straight Rye which were born in Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, matured along Wyoming’s elevated western frontier and crafted on-site at The Farm at Brush Creek.

Jason helped launch Brush Creek Distillery in 2019, fulfilling a long-held vision to produce spirits at Brush Creek Ranch. Prior to this, he spent 18 years at Republic National Distributing Company of Kentucky, working as Marketing Manager, Area Sales Manager, and Assistant Director of Operations, making him the natural fit to spearhead the Distillery’s expansion into the Kentucky market. In 2020, the Distillery appointed Philip Mundt, previous Production Manager at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, as Head Distiller and Production Manager to oversee all operations at the Distillery.

The team at Brush Creek Distillery looks to their environment and the Western landscape for inspiration and collaborates with The Farm at Brush Creek to foster sustainability, promote innovation and produce spirits using certified organic greenhouse botanicals, mountain water, ranch-foraged ingredients and sustainable practices. Spent grains from the production of bourbon and rye are shared with local ranchers and Brush Creek Ranch where Executive Pastry and Bakery Chef, Keisha Sanderson, uses the grains in the creation of “Spent Grain Bread.” Empty barrel char is used in the cheese and ice cream making process at Medicine Bow Creamery.

The four ultra-premium products now available in Kentucky include:

  • Brush Creek Straight Bourbon: A unique four-grain blend, showcasing the beauty of multiple straight bourbon whiskeys from storied programs born in Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee, matured at high elevations under Wyoming’s bluebird skies. The product and its unique mash bill are the results of over two decades of industry experience, strong friendships, a passion for excellence and the pursuit to celebrate the American West.

Brush Creek Distillery’s very own Wyoming-distilled and aged Straight Bourbon, and Straight Rye will continue to mature and age in the years ahead, preparing for future release.
