According to the company website, “The Kentucky Senator brand was originally distilled and bottled by Crigler & Crigler in Covington, Kentucky, then by Double Springs Distillers, Inc. in Bardstown. Revived by Kentucky Senator Spirits, LLC in 2019, each release of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey will carry the name of an esteemed U.S. Senator from the Bluegrass State.”
The first release is named for Senator Alben W. Barkley of McCracken County. Barkley served as a U.S. Senator (D-Kentucky) from 1927-1949, and then again in 1955 until he passed away in 1956. He served as Vice President of the United States under President Harry S. Truman from 1949-1953.
This first release of Kentucky Senator is a (very) small batch bourbon consisting of only 1,350 bottles. It was distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky. The bottle in review is number 1,264.
