New Boss Molly Bourbon Expression Finished With Brandy Staves

A new, woman-owned whiskey label recently launched a small batch bourbon with a unique spin on production, branding, curation, and consumption.

Featuring an iconic woman on the new bourbon’s label, Boss Molly Bourbon will honor the women of bourbon, according to the brand’s three female founders.

A statement from the whiskey maker notes that Boss Molly is meant to deliver a softer, more rounded drinking experience through its craft touches, such as adding water at barreling.

Boss Molly is aged 4 years, and is a wheat-forward bourbon. The distiller’s notes show that it opens with sweet caramel, toasted almond, and citrus notes. The toasted brandy stave finish gives a nuanced and a long finish, with layers of leather, butterscotch, and baking spice.

Even rounded for a smoother drink, it clocks in at 90 proof. Launched this winter, the suggested retail price is $69.99 a bottle.

Founders Brandi Bowles, Victoria Horn, and Kate Rosante have followed different paths to their whiskey passion.

The statement from Boss Molly explained that Victoria grew up with a tradition of bourbon and bonfires at her family farm, which developed her palate through travel and innate curiosity. Brandi was raised in Kentucky, rooted in bourbon traditions and culture. And Kate has been mixing drinks at her parents bar since childhood, which brought about her love of cocktails.

The story goes that at a poker game one night, they realized nearly every bourbon in their repertoire was named after men long gone. And knowing that women were some of the earliest distillers of whiskey, the trio developed the idea of making a bourbon curated expressly by, and for, women’s palates.

And the Boss Molly team gives back to the environment, using a portion of their profits to improve the soil and environment where their crops grow. For every bottle sold, a tree is planted with the help of the National Forest Foundation, choosing this because their bourbon is aged in American oak.
