Hudson Baby Bourbon is made up of 100% corn (i.e. maize) grown in New York state, sourced from within 10 miles of Tuthilltown Distillery. This was the first legal aged grain spirit to be produced in New York since Prohibition ended over 75 years ago. Owned by father and son combination Ralph and Gable Erenzo, this family run distillery produces a number of spirits including this fabulous and popular bourbon.
Deep amber in colour, with magenta lights – the new oak casks are small, to encourage this richness. As promised, the first impression on the nose is corn-on-the cob, liberally buttered, with traces of hard toffee, allspice and oak. An oily texture, and a clean, fresh (pine sap), sweet (but not cloying) taste, with lingering oak in the aftertaste.
