Hudson Whiskey "Bright Lights, Big Bourbon" Straight Bourbon Whiskey - New York
Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Bright Lights, Big Bourbon is a bold, grain-forward, no-holds-barred straight bourbon whiskey. Distilled from New York corn and aged in new charred American oak barrels, with notes of rich vanilla and lightly salted caramel on the finish, it shines brighter than the rest.
Like many New York stories, their story started with a bold proposition: make whiskey in New York for the first time since prohibition. In 2003, Ralph Erenzo had a wild idea to move upstate and start a distillery, way back before there was a craft distiller in every neighborhood across the US. Ralph didn’t play by the rules. He fought for his whiskey and challenged the government to change the laws for craft distillers everywhere. Now craft distilling is everywhere — with over 1,800 distilleries in the US, and over 180 in New York alone.
