SELECTED WHISKEYS

OUR PHILOSOPHY

In 1974, when A. H. HIRSCH first imagined his now legendary bourbon, he set the gold standard for thoughtful American whiskey. Today, HIRSCH continues to pursue whiskey as an explorer might consider uncharted territory. We believe the world is full of possibility, there’s always room for discovery, and craft is best balanced with experimentation. With obsessively discerning selections, HIRSCH continues to blaze trails for the adventurous.
 

“The only real pleasure is the satisfaction of going where no man has been before and where few can follow.”

— Annie Smith Peck
