The Emerson family is all about legacy, about family, about values. We're all about leaving this place a little better off than when we found it. We are all about the spirit of adventure, the ideas and meaning of being self-sufficient, of independence and rugged individualism. The idea of sovereignty runs deep in this family, all the way back to Isa Emerson, a minuteman who fought at the Battle of Lexington and Concord, the very first battle of the Revolutionary War, a direct relative of ours fighting for Freedom, Liberty, sovereignty.
After a two-year process of researching and searching, we have handpicked this Kentucky straight bourbon – a family selected single barrel choice – to be the one we introduce as the first offering from the Emerson Whiskey Company. It is a bourbon straight out of the heart of Bourbon Country, distilled by a legacy distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky and bottled in Stanford, Kentucky. This superb tasting whiskey brings to you everything you'd expect from the Emerson family.
I appreciate fine scotch and I love good Irish whiskey, but there's just something about bourbon… I can't explain it.
Maybe it's the story. Maybe it's the culture. Maybe it's the friends that I share it with. Maybe it's all of it. I just can't explain it… I just like it.
