Joseph Magnus Bourbon Newly Available Via Allan S. Goodman

By May 26, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Joseph Magnus Bourbon is a straight bourbon whiskey aged in white oak and finished in Oloroso sherry, Pedro Ximénez sherry and Cognac casks. Joseph Magnus Murray Hill Club Blended Bourbon is a blend of 18-year bourbon, 11-year bourbon and a bit of 9-year light whiskey to round out the flavor, “coming as close as possible to the original Joseph Magnus Bourbon in that 122-year-old bottle.”

Allan S. Goodman, Inc., launched a pre-Prohibition bourbon brand to add to its spirits line: the Washington, D.C.-based Jos. A. Magnus & Co. Its offerings, Joseph Magnus Bourbon and Joseph Magnus Murray Hill Club Blended Bourbon, build on a legacy that began in 1892. Joseph Alexander Magnus began distilling, blending and rectifying whiskeys and gins in the pre-Prohibition era. Inspired by Joseph’s story, his great-grandson has reintroduced the line. Using the same blending and finishing techniques Joseph Magnus employed more than 100 years ago, Magnus Master Blender Nancy Fraley creates the award-winning bourbons, referencing recipes and tastes from original bottles of the whiskey, which were preserved and passed down through the family.
