Willet Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
modern day whiskey making. Beginning in Louisville Kentucky during Reconstruction, John David Willett — the family patriarch — began distilling whiskey at the Moore, Willett & Frenke Distillery. At 15 his son, A. Lambert Willett began following in his father's footsteps distilling whiskey. Three decades later, Lambert, together with his son, Thompson purchased a farm on the outskirts of Bardstown, Kentucky, and began construction of the Willett Distilling Company. While the Willett Distilling Company eventually changed its name to Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, the family tradition lives on — Even Kulsveen, the current owner of KBD, is Thompson Willett's son-in-law.
In keeping with family tradition, Willett Pot Still Reserve is a single-barrel Kentucky straight bourbon. Aged for between eight and ten years, Willett Pot Still Reserve bourbon earned the Gold Medal for taste at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2008, and the Double Gold Medal for design. Its unique shape and design are meant to resemble the pot still that was used for generations at the Willett Distilling Company.
Each bottle is sealed with a label identifying the individual aging barrel, the number of the bottle within the series of bottles for that barrel, and the total number of bottles from the barrel.
The Willett family legacy lives on in Willett Pot Still Reserve.

The honey-like sweetness and the natural sweet aroma of the Connecticut broadleaf binder make this cigar an enjoyably smooth and flavor earthy smoke.

Glencairn Crystal solved the problem of identifying the ideal glass for whiskey, appropriately named the Glencairn Whiskey Glass. Designed by Raymond Davidson nearly 25 years earlier, its development involved pulling together the master blenders from the five largest whisky companies and asking them to perfect his initial design.
While the traditional style of whiskey glass is a cut crystal Old Fashioned whiskey tumbler, an iconic design that remains the most commonly used type of whisky glass. However, a tumbler does not hold and focus the aromas as much for the experience of the drinker as the other styles, which curve inwards towards the top of the glass.
