William Grant & Sons, the fiercely independent Scottish family company is launching its first from-the-ground-up American whiskey. Fistful of Bourbon is a blend of five straight American bourbons – hence a fistful – aged at least two years that together delivers the best that bourbon has to offer. Just grab a bottle, turn it around and we’ll tell you exactly what each of the five brings to the table.
The rollout starts in Texas (sorry, New York and San Francisco, you’re going to have to wait on this one) and it’s blended and bottled at 45% ABV with an SRP of $24.99 for 750ml and $2.99 for 50ml.
Fistful of Bourbon is a 100 percent straight American whiskey blended and you’d expect from a full-fisted bourbon, the whiskey has five distinct flavors: balanced and sweet; green, leafy floral notes; soft spices and hints of nutmeg; buttery toffee; cinnamon and licorice.
“There’s an art and science to blending — and Fistful is a balance of both,” explained William Grant & Sons Whisk(e)y Blender, Kelsey 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.”
Fistful is available in select on- and off-premise retailers throughout Texas. For more info, visit www.fistfulofbourbon.com.
