Until he could fire up his own still, the country’s most corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast, procured the finest bourbon, bottled it, trademarked the brand name, and sold Royal Gold to a thirsty public. In the same spirit and with the same name, we present Pendergast’s Royal Gold Bourbon. We didn’t have to bribe anyone to make it taste this good.
With aromas of caramelized sugar, pleasant oak, and stone fruits, this bourbon is perfect for treating special guests. To achieve a smooth and well-balanced flavor, we finish Royal Gold in hand-selected 14-year-old ruby port casks.
This is an approachable bourbon, lighter-bodied, with notes of citrus, apricot, honey and vanilla. A warm, well integrated bourbon that’s good on the rocks or in a simple cocktail.
Combine all ingredients in canister, shake, and strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
