William Grant & Sons, the Scottish family-run company, has launched its first American whiskey.
Fistful of Bourbon is a blend of five straight American bourbons – literally a fistful – aged at least two years.
Launching first in Texas, Fistful of Bourbon is bottled at 45% ABV with an SRP of $24.99 for a 750-ml. bottle and $2.99 for a 50-ml.
Fistful of Bourbon is a 100% straight American whiskey blended by William Grant & Sons Master Blender Brian Kinsman, and Kelsey McKechnie, William Grant & Sons Whisk(e)y Blender, after sampling straight bourbons from across America. The result is a whiskey that’s sweet with green, leafy floral notes, soft spices and hints of nutmeg, buttery toffee, as well as cinnamon and licorice, the company says.
“There’s an art and science to blending — and Fistful is a balance of both,” says McKechnie. “Our creative process combined the art of nosing along with our vision for the whiskey and the science of blending different bourbons to create a unique taste all its own. We’re excited to showcase William Grant & Sons’ long-time blending experience by bringing it to the American whiskey scene.”
