A Whiskey club
for gentlemen

History

Like all good things, the idea for a whiskey club was sparked over a drink; fittingly for this narrative, bourbon. Good whiskey isn’t hard to come by, unfortunately nether is the bad. Discussion among friends and acquaintances yields insight on what good whiskey may be, however navigating through the sea of recommendations is time consuming, expensive, and quite frankly hard on the liver. It was in the midst of pondering this conundrum, when the idea sprang to life, seemingly straight out of the glass; build a group of whiskey lovers. A group has a more diverse palate, experience, and purchasing power than the individual. Everyone involved would be able to benefit from the experiences of each other and rapidly expand their tasting library along the way.

Fast forward a few months, and the inaugural meeting of the newly formed group was underway. Comprised of a few close friends and family members, the foundations for the operation of the unnamed club were set. Themes, buyers, budget, etc. were all in place, however the most important aspect was still missing; the name. Deliberation and serious discussion led us to land on the majority vote of “The Whiskey Dicks,” an eloquent summation of our group as whole. As this burden was finally lifted from the collective shoulders of the group, an old oil portrait caught the eye of a member. The portrait of a rugged, yet refined gentleman looked approvingly over the Dicks. “Who’s that a painting of?” they asked. There was no way of knowing. He was an enigma, a mysterious individual who had been brushed onto ancient canvas, spending eternity among eclectic trinkets banished to a basement room. “That’s Dick! He could be the face of the club!” But Dick wasn’t fitting for a man of his caste; his name was Richard. Richard Bourbon. With that realization, and what can only be described as a stroke of brilliance, “The Whiskey Dicks” were gone, dust, and only ash remained. But like a phoenix bursting to life from this ash, with the unimaginable brilliance of flame, “The Richard Bourbon Man’s Club” was formed.

Richard Bourbon Bourbon ,

This bourbon started out as an experiment with just three bourbon barrels on Trey’s friend, Chris Fischer of OCEARCH’s ship, in a curious effort to discover what would happen if bourbon was left to weather the extreme elements: temperature fluctuations, salt air and the gentle rocking of the ship. The result was a thick, dark […]

Richard Bourbon Whiskey ,

At first sight, this bright straw-gold whisky has a ruby red hue. At first swirl, top notes of toasty new oak, almond nuttiness, caramel and vanilla rise from the glass followed by underlying notes that suggest nutmeg and stone fruit. Adding a touch of water brings out further notes of sweet spice and dark raisin. […]
