Willie Nelson’s Old Whiskey River

Old Whiskey River was made especially for an American original,Willie Nelson. So we wanted to get his input every step of the way. From the brand name to the label and most importantly, what’s inside the bottle. We sent samples to him while he was touring on the road to get his thumbs-up on the different batches until we finally came up with a bourbon that he’d put his name on, one that he calls smooth, sweet and mellow.

Small-Batch Bourbon the way Willie Nelson likes it: Smooth, Sweet and Mellow. Inspired by Willie Nelson’s 1978 hit song, Old Whiskey River is an 86 proof small-batch bourbon, aged six years in new charred American oak barrels. The bourbon is handcrafted to Willie’s taste by Parker and Craig Beam, the 7th and 8th generation master distillers at Heaven Hill, in Bardstown, Nelson County, Kentucky.
