Distillery:  "James Thornett is an original gentleman adventurer. From the war zones of the Middle East with his elite 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 desire to create a new bourbon & rye, capturing 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! He teamed up was some industry stars who loved the story and shared a vision of what he wanted to create - Steve Grasse (Creator of Hendrick's gin), JP Fetherston (Global Ambassador for Hendrick's gin & Shoulder Monkey), Xavier Padovani and Josh Volz.

It was in Baghdad in 2004, James Thornett (former British PARA officer) started smuggling millions of dollars of high quality liquor down the most dangerous road in the world at the time, to supply the famous Baghdad Country Club, a speakeasy he established and owned in the Green Zone. He worked for a security company providing security for the UN for his 9 to 5. In a world of chaos it was an oasis of calm where style mixed with adventure and not a small amount of danger. They should write a book about him. Wait, they did. (Kindle and Audible).

The Buckshee name is derived from the Arabic word Bak-sheesh meaning a small tip or bribe. It was adapted by the colonial soldiers after the first world war to mean a free drink.

Starting with the aroma of burnt sugar, cut wood, fresh fruit, and cool autumn nights, our bourbon goes down smooth, initial heat fading 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."
