In 1936 Thompson Willett founded Willett Distillery. Today, the tradition continues. The distillery was erected near the family farm, which had been purchased by Lambert Willett, Thompsons dad. Upon completion, in the spring of 1937, Willett Distillery produced its first batch of Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. That First batch amounted to 300 bushels (30 barrels) on March 17, 1937, St. Patricks Day. The newly barrelled Bourbon was stored in one of the family’s rickhouses, each capable of storing between 4,000 and 5,000 Whiskey barrels. The rickhouses were built on some of the highest ground in the county, assuring that a fresh breeze would aid in the maturation of the Whiskey. To this day, descendants of Thompson Willett are still carrying on the family tradition of making ?ne Kentucky Bourbon and Kentucky Rye Whiskey at the same spot that Thompson and his family operated over 80 years ago.
Willett’s Rye is legendary, this is a bottle of the Family Estate Small Batch Rye. Matured in hand selected White Oak barrels for ten years and bottled at cask strength.
