Like our founder Ricky Ford, Gentle Ben and the innovative technology that makes it special are both Texas-born, and the Gentle Ben distillery calls Texas home. So wherever you are, try Gentle Ben and experience not just the smoothest sip, but also a little taste of the amazing spirit…that’s behind the spirits.
gentle ben bourbon
Gentle Ben is a straight, 94-proof bourbon whiskey, crafted from high-rye mash and refined by our Persedo C.R.A.F.T technology. Notes of caramel, pecan pie, and spiced orange zest combine with a soft, satin-like mouthfeel to make it super smooth and dangerously drinkable.
Enjoy it straight up as a classic sipping whiskey, or in your favorite cocktail. Dress it up in a Manhattan, get comfortable with an Old Fashioned, or kick back with a shot of soda, ginger, or cola for a smoother, more satisfying, old-school Highball. This go-to whiskey fits in anywhere.
