The latest addition to the American Whiskey category, Bowsaw Straight Corn Whiskey, has secured a listing with Ocado.
Bowsaw American Whiskey is rooted in the heart of Kentucky whiskey-making, one of the great American traditions. With greatness in mind, Bowsaw has chosen its partners carefully and curates unique expressions from two prized distilleries in the north of Kentucky, who combined enjoy over 350 years of distilling heritage and pedigree. Each cask is chosen for unique qualities with a view to celebrating the diverse landscape of American Whiskey expressions.
Bowsaw Straight Corn Whiskey is distilled and matured near Louisville in northern Kentucky and has a mash bill comprising 91% corn, 5% barley and 4% rye. The whiskey is aged between 4 and 5 years in refill American oak barrels and bottled at 43% for extra power on the palate and cut through in mixed drinks.
The result is a unique flavour profile with aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and straw followed by flavours of caramel, charred corn and salted butter before finishing with cracked pepper, lemon and dried grass.
The award-winning whiskey, which won a silver medal at the prestigious International Spirits Challenge in 2020, shortly after its launch and more recently a silver medal at the London Spirits Competition 2021, is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Kirker Greer Spirits. Steven Pattison, CEO of Kirker Greer Spirits said:
”We are incredibly proud to partner with Ocado, who are continually supporting innovation, new brands and greater choice for their customers. The listing marks a significant milestone for Bowsaw, making it available in the UK grocery channel and increasing brand presence nationwide. “
Gary Hyde, Ocado senior spirits buyer, said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our Whiskey range to include Bowsaw and be able to offer this high quality and award-winning brand to our customers. Not only will the exceptional flavour profile appeal to Ocado shoppers but the unique hand-finished bottle which really complements the brand’s sense of craft.”
