A Bourbon That Redefines Bourbon.

Legent is a new, distinctive whiskey experience, as well as a new understanding of how learning from others can broaden horizons and push you out of your comfort zone.

A Bourbon Unlike Any Other.

Legent is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey partially finished in wine and sherry casks. But it's more than that. It pushes the boundaries for how bourbons can be created while remaining true to the core of bourbon's principles. It's a collaboration between two whiskey legends – Fred Noe & Shinji Fukuyo – and two unique styles of whiskey making.

The Creation of a New Style of Bourbon.

Our Story Begins With Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Legent starts with a historic bourbon recipe from Fred Noe's family. Every drop is crafted with high-quality grains and calcium-rich, iron-free, limestone water and is aged for at least four years in newly charred white oak barrels.

It's here that Legent begins to pick up unique flavors from the different casks. Layers of spice and fruity undertones are imparted from the sherry casks, while the red-wine casks lend Legent a light tartness and help punch up the dried fruit flavors.

Through Blending, Legent's Complex Layers Take Shape.

Shinji Fukuyo takes these distinct, secondary-finished bourbons and meticulously blends them with Kentucky straight bourbon. Blending allows Shinji to balance the different flavors to consistently hit the flavor profile he and Fred originally envisioned.

Together, Fred & Shinji Have Created a Bourbon Like No Other.

Legent transcends the broader whiskey category. It's a perfectly balanced and rounded bourbon that's also complex and layered. On your palate, it starts like a bourbon – rich, warm and oaky. Then, like a Japanese whisky, it features complex layers and a bright, smooth, unexpectedly long finish.

The Recipe for a Historic Collaboration.

Legent has brought together over 220 years of bourbon-making heritage and nearly 100 years of Japanese whisky artistry. It's a unique collaboration between two of the world's most revered whiskey makers. And just like a traditional bourbon, Legent starts with premium grains, like corn, rye and malted barley, and is aged in select white oak barrels.

Three Barrels, One Unique Taste.

Three different types of barrels are used to create the unique flavor profile of Legent. Each one imparts its own unique characteristics to this boundary-pushing bourbon.
