Every bottle of Five Nine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made with 100% Kentucky-grown corn, Kentucky’s famous limestone water and then aged in new, No. 4 char American oak barrels - the way it has always been done. Our mash bill is 70% corn, 21% winter rye, and 9% malted 2 and 6-row barley. The higher rye content results in a bourbon with warm spice notes on the nose and palate.

What the experts say: A rich, golden amber color. Aromas of cherry, spiced toffee, and dark chocolate; with a round, crisp, dry medium body and a warming, sweet cornbread, French toast, and maple finish. A nicely concentrated high rye bourbon, with big, bold caramelly flavors. Our distilling partner, Owensboro Distilling Co., DSP-KY-10, opened its doors in Daviess County Kentucky in 1885. The celebrated distillery has been producing bourbon for 130 years and several storied Kentucky Bourbon brands have been distilled on the historic site. Today the distillery stands proud as the westernmost location on the famed Kentucky Bourbon trail.
