Drew Kulsveen

If Drew were a whiskey he would be Willett Family Estate Rye. The elegant exterior honors a long storied family history marked by courage and generosity. The liquid inside has a forward fresh flavor that is youthful yet mature. Drew is a native of Bardstown KY and graduate of Western Kentucky University. After graduating with degrees in marketing and economics, Drew returned home for a complete education in the family business. Initially, Drew spent much of his time studying the careful precision of co-mingling whiskey. Soon Drew’s knack for all things engineering landed him in the distillery. Over the years, Drew has developed additional mash bills to expand the company’s whiskey portfolio earning him 3 James Beard Award nominations. When he is not making whiskey, Drew travels the country sharing his passion with bourbon newcomers and seasoned enthusiasts. Together Drew, wife Janelle and children Baron and Bridjette love to host guests in their historic Bardstown home.
