A blend of bourbons to hold over the distillery until their own distillate is ready, the current iteration of Brush Creek Bourbon is a good stopgap in the meantime.

Launched in 2019, Brush Creek Distillery currently sources their bourbon from distilleries from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, and ages and blends onsite in Wyoming. The distillery started producing their own distillate in December of 2019 and plans to age it 4-5 years before bringing it to market. The current sourced version is a readily approachable bourbon that has something for everyone. The nose offers a pleasing sweet offering of scents, while the palate focuses more on spicier and drier notes that help showcase the higher ages of the bourbons in the blend. Ending on spicy notes that bring an adequate layer of heat, it’s a no-nonsense bourbon that is easy to appreciate. Factoring in the multiple states the bourbon is sourced from, the price being asked is reasonable for the sip that is offered. It will be interesting to see how Brush Creek transitions over to their own distillate, but for the time being, the current iteration of Brush Creek Bourbon (and rye) hits the spot.
