Here’s how to entertain your guests this summer with this super-premium new drop!

Bourbon is back and gaining favour the world over with a brand new premium drop, Legent.

The brainchild of two whiskey legends, Jim Beam’s Master Distiller Fred Noe and Suntory’s Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo, Legent blends the best of both worlds for a unique bourbon steeped in Kentucky tradition and Japanese detail.

A first-of-its-kind, Legentstarts as a Kentucky Straight Bourbon before being aged in hand-selected wine and sherry casks. The liquid is then meticulously blended resulting in a bold spirit that is well-balanced on the palate with a bright, smooth and unexpectedly long finish.
