Owner of Buckshee, James Thornett is an original gentleman adventurer. From the war zones of the Middle East with his elite British paratrooper unit, to the jungles of Central America and West Africa, James has sought adventure and excitement in them all.
It was his love for whiskey and a desire to capture the tastes of his adventures that led to the creation of Buckshee. He wanted his whiskey to represent three core values — quality, spirit of adventure and a little mischief thrown in the mix.
Starting with the aroma of burnt sugar, cut wood, fresh fruit and cool autumn nights, Buckshee Bourbon goes down smooth. Initial heat fades to a silky softness, bringing a campfire smoke from the extra dose of charred American oak, with the crisp finish of juicy green apples and fresh-sawed oak.
Mash bill: 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malt.
Aged a minimum of 24 months in new American oak.
