Walker’s Cay whiskey pays homage to Walker’s Cay, which is a 100 acre island located 53 miles to the northeast of West End, Grand Bahama and 105 miles northeast of Jupiter, Florida, in the northern Bahamas. According to the company, proceeds from every bottle directly help the Bahamian community.
Light, sweet, and with a hint towards fruit and floral notes, Walker’s Cay’s strength lies in its combination of drinkability and subtle complexity, making for a flavor profile that is unlikely to offend anybody. Distilled by Green River Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky and then finished with sherry staves, Walker’s Cay is different enough to take note of and will satisfy new and experienced bourbon drinkers alike.
