    Thomas Handy Labeling Question

    I have a quick question concerning Thomas Handy. Four of the five BTACs say "Kentucky Straight Bourbon/Rye" on the labels. Thomas Handy only says "Straight Rye Whiskey" and omits the word Kentucky. I had always thought it was distilled at BT and aged in KY. Why do the other bottles indicate KY and this one does not?

    I have been curious of this in the past but have never bothered to ask.

    Re: Thomas Handy Labeling Question

    I am under the same impression. FWIW, the bottle does also say "Product of Kentucky" and "Distilled, Aged and Bottled by Sazerac Company, Frankfort, KY"

    Maybe the bottle's homage to the Sazerac Coffee House in 'Nawlins is what led them to omit Kentucky
