The American Whiskey, this whiskey is made from a combination of spring water, corn, rye and barley malt. Bourbon must be made from a minimum of 51% corn, but no more than 80%. Bourbon derives its name from Bourbon County, Kentucky where this particular type of whiskey was developed.
Buffalo Trace uses the finest Kentucky and Indiana corn, selected rye and superior malted barley, which is gently aged in new American oak barrels to create a perfectly balanced flavour of sweet, oak and spice, leaving a long, smooth finish.
Crafted at the world’s most award winning distillery, Buffalo Trace comes from a long line of history. For over 200 years the Buffalo Trace Distillery has been defined by a dedication to one craft: making fine bourbon whiskey. For more information visit www.buffalotracedistillery.com
A complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste, with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. The finish is long and smooth.

Paddy is a triple-distilled, blended, Irish Whiskey, made from a unique blend of pot still, malt and grain whiskeys. Paddy owes its name to the legendary distillery salesman, Paddy Flaherty. Famed throughout his native county Cork for buying rounds of his favourite tipple, he became so synonymous with the whiskey he sold, that in 1913 the distillery owners paid him the ultimate tribute by renaming the whiskey ‘Paddy’ in his honour.

White Dog is the affectionate name given to new-make spirit often known as ‘moonshine’. This raw, high proof spirit coats the mouth with sweet corn and vanilla.
