Prichard's Double Barreled Bourbon...$59.99
Jim Murray 2009 Whiskey Bible provides the following:
“A classy effortless delivery. The corn-rye integration oozes sophistication and the vanilla-themed oak offers the perfect background. Immediate bitter sweet character celebrates both a raisin-fruity juiciness and a much firmer, burned-honeycombed middle; complex, classy and challenging; thuddingly firm with limited yield. Spices from the rye try to probe the wall but this is the metalled hoof a Kentucky thoroughbred; a very different bourbon that ticks the boxes as they should but throws in a few curve balls for the palate to negotiate.”

The high quality expensive taste of Benjamin Prichard’s Double Barrel is no accident. Our bourbon is created using a unique, labor intensive and yes, expensive process. Bourbon is generally barreled at a relatively high 125 proof. However, the final bottle proof may be as low as 80. The question then is “How does the bourbon get from 125 proof to 80 proof?” The answer is that the whiskey has been watered down before you screw off the cork and water dilutes flavor. Our bourbon is taken from 120 proof to 95 proof and re-barreled in new charred oak barrels to reinforce the barrel notes that bourbon is so famous for. To our knowledge there is no other distillery that utilizes this process. Benjamin Prichard’s Double Barreled Bourbon is truly special and has captured the attention of our customers who are virtually demanding that we produce more of this remarkable bourbon. 




Sweet Lucy Bourbon Liqueur (70 Proof)...$22.99
Sweet Lucy’s legacy has been flowing up and down the Mississippi flyway for years, warming the bodies and souls of outdoorsman for generations. Born in a duck blind and a frequent companion on duck hunts, variations of Sweet Lucy were generally homemade elixirs of peaches, oranges and apricots with lots of sugar and whiskey. Great pride would often be displayed by its maker as the bottle made its rounds for a sip among friends. 

Although you may no longer find these same homemade remedies for the chill of a cold winter morning in a duck blind, Prichard's Distillery, Inc. has captured the essence of the original Sweet Lucy. Benjamin Prichard’s Sweet Lucy is an officially licensed product of Ducks Unlimited, Inc. Along with the noted Ducks Unlimited Logo the following statement is proudly printed on each bottle of Sweet Lucy: 

With each purchase of Sweet Lucy, Prichard's Distillery will make a contribution to DUCKS Unlimited for their ongoing wetland conservation efforts throughout North America. Always remember, after the hunt, the best mixer for Sweet Lucy is…just good friends.
