Willett XCF Exploratory Cask Finish Rye Whiskey
THE WILLETT TRADITION
In the spring of 1936, at the age of 27, Thompson Willett founded Willett Distillery. The distillery was erected near the family farm, which had been purchased by Lambert Willett, Thompson’s dad. Upon completion, in the spring of 1937, Willett Distillery produced its ﬁrst batch of Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. That ﬁrst batch amounted to 300 bushels (~30 barrels) on March 17, 1937, St. Patrick’s Day.
To this day, descendants of Thompson Willett are still carrying on the family tradition of making ﬁne Kentucky Bourbon and Kentucky Rye Whiskey at the same spot that Thompson and his family operated over 80 years ago.

In the latter portion of 2011, the family opened a visitor center and tasting room. It is quite common for the visitor center to carry very rare releases of Single Barrel and Small Batch Willett Family Estate Bottled Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys. We would like to extend a warm welcome.
