Our Grain-to-Glass Story. Two Whiskey Legends Come Together.

Like any bourbon, it all starts with the grains. But unlike any other bourbon, how Legent ends up in your glass is a completely unique process. See how Fred and Shinji each played an integral, collaborative role in the creation of this truly unique bourbon.

Grain to Barrel. Where It All Begins.

For generations, seven actually, Fred's family has been making bourbons loved the world over. Each starts with premium grains, like corn, rye and malted barley, and is aged in select white oak barrels so it can become a traditional bourbon.

For most bourbons, this is where their journeys would end. But not Legent.

Barrel to Bottle. Shinji's Artful Blending.

Legent is aged again in sherry and red-wine casks where it picks up several unique flavors. Then Shinji meticulously blends these secondary-finished bourbons with more Kentucky straight bourbon. Blending allows Shinji to balance, add and unlock layers of complex flavors.

This is how Shinji took a historic recipe from Fred's family from barrel to bottle.
