Basil Hayden Sr. – known as Old Grand-Dad to the generations that followed – made bourbon the way he wanted. He went against the traditional “grain” of the time and chose to distill his bourbon with a higher percentage of rye. This way of crafting bourbon was likely something he handed down to his son. And in turn, his grandson. That was Colonel R.B. Hayden who would justly name his bourbon after his Old Grand-Dad. The recipe today remains inspired by Basil’s original with complex flavors and an unmistakable spiciness. First bottled in 1882, very little has changed about it since.

Tasting Notes

From the distillery: On the palate, charred oak and black pepper spice with sweet notes of vanilla and caramel, with hint of dried fruit.


Today, Old Grand Dad bourbon is produced by Beam Suntory (a subsidiary of Suntory). Made from 63% corn, 27% rye, and 10% malted barley, aged for at least four years and bottled at 80 proof this is considered a high rye bourbon.

    Good whiskey, it don’t sneak up on you. You know what’s coming. It’s not like Canadian whiskey which I like, which is very smooth. “Ol Grandad” 100 proof, lets you know with first sip you are drinking good whiskey. I drink it neat. Its too honest to mix.
