One of bourbon’s original tastemakers, EJ Curley founded his namesake brand along the Kentucky River Palisades in 1867. He was a prolific marketing maven and quickly created additional brands including Blue Grass Bourbon, Boone’s Knoll Bourbon, and Curley Rye. Curley’s mind for brand creation was matched only by his business acumen, as evidenced by a sale of 8,600 barrels to a buyer in Chicago for a modern-day equivalent of nineteen million dollars – the largest bourbon sale ever recorded at the time. A connoisseur to the very end, Curley spent his golden years living at the Ritz Carlton Paris raising glasses with the most influential artists and thinkers of the time.

The modern EJ Curley brand honors the man by bringing to market expertly handcrafted small batch and single barrel bourbon expressions hand-selected by master blender Ashley Barnes, who cut her teeth at Buffalo Trace and Four Roses.
