What is Bourbon Cream?

Bourbon is a type of American Whiskey that has been distilled since the 18th century. Bourbon Cream is a unique blend of cream and bourbon. When cream and bourbon get together, you have a spirit that is similar to Irish Cream but is richer and bolder in taste with caramel and vanilla notes.

 

Our bespoke bourbon cream is the only farm fresh New York state bourbon cream around. It’s made with our flagship spirit, our small-batch. four gain bourbon. Like all real bourbons, the four grain is at least 51% corn (it actually comes in at 60%), bottled at no less than 80 proof, and is stored in a new, charred oak barrel.

 

Now that you’ve got the basics, here are 6 of our favorite bourbon cream drinks made with our famous bourbon cream liqueur. From a simple addition to coffee to updating an ice cream classic, Bourbon Cream wins the hearts and taste buds of bourbon and dessert lovers alike. So, grab your friends, and whip up some of these delicious craft cocktail recipes featuring our signature Bourbon Cream.
