Welcome to Bourbon Country!


Here at Healthy Spirits we’ve been on a mission lately to bring you some of the rarest and best Bourbons in the world. Bourbon is a unique spirit which is recognized as a distinctly American product, Scotland has it’s Scotchs, France has it’s Cognacs and Armagnacs(amoung others), Mexico has it’s Tequilas and here in the States we have that sweet brown Kentucky nectar known as Bourbon. Bourbon’s distinct flavor comes from the large amount of corn used in the mash(51% or greater), as well as the combination of rye, barley and/or wheat. It is this use of 3-4 ingredients in different ratios that allows for such a tapestry of different flavors. Not surprising many believe that Bourbon is the most skillfully crafted spirit in the world. Anyone thristy yet?

Without further ado here’s some of the new Bourbons we just recieved:

George T. Stagg 16yr -An extremely hearty whiskey. Stagg is bottled at barrel proof and unfiltered. Powerful and intense with notes of toffee, molasses, vanilla and coffee.

William Larue Weller 11yr – Wheated Bourbon bottled at Barrel Proof and unfiltered. Nose of pepper, oak, caramel corn, leather, plum and pipe tobacco. Flavors are astoundingly rich with honey, marshmallows, sauteed almonds, nougat, figs and dates .

Eagle Rare 17yr – Recently recieved 96 pts from Wine Enthusiast. An amazingly smooth combination of molasses, leather, vanilla, violet and toffee.

Thomas H. Handy 7yr Rye – Intense Rye Whiskey bottled at Barrel Proof and unfiltered. Notes of allspice, pepper, dried fruit, tobacco and a touch of cinnamon.

Sazerac 18yr
Rye – Enormous in every respect, from its thick, chewy texture to its unbelievably spicy and powerful flavors. Notes of mint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, vanilla, molasses, oak, leather, and lingering pepper.

Can we do some shots already? Anyway most of these are extremely limited quantities, so get em while you can, or before I drink them. I also have a couple Pappy Van Winkle 23yr left in addition to some other great single barrel Bourbons you can find on our new Bourbon Menu:
