Description

Basil Hayden is a Bourbon whiskey producer based in Clermont, Kentucky and produced out of the James B. Beam (Jim Beam) distillery there. As such, Basil Hayden falls within the Beam Suntory drinks empire.

A range of labels are produced but core bottlings are the Straight Bourbon and Aged 10 Years expressions as well as the Dark Rye, Toast and Subtle Smoke labels. A number of limited edition bottlings and labels have been released over the years.

The brand is relatively new, however, being established in 1992 by Beam master distiller Booker Noe. It was named after Meredith Basil Hayden Senior – a pioneering distiller and rye farmer from 18th Century Maryland who experimented with higher rye percentages in his Bourbon mash bill (a move replicated by Noe in the creation of the brand).
