Big Nose Kate® is an artfully balanced western whiskey created by our award-winning Master Blender, Melissa Heim.


The western frontier was (in)famously a wild crossroads of myriad cultures and influences; a melting pot where fascinating, robust new combinations formed constantly. Indeed, you might think of the Old West itself as an extraordinary and rare “blend.” And so was Kate the person. Her stories combined with the place and time in which she lived them sparked our imagination and directly influenced our approach to making this whiskey. 

Well-traveled. Brave. Bold. A rare combination. It's Big Nose Kate®.


Yes, it’s big: Dried fruit, biscuits, bitter chocolate, coffee, orange peel and a wisp of mint.


Fully bodied with a rich mouthfeel.  Opens with dry sherry and cherry fruit, cereal grain and green apple with a finish of baking spices and cocoa.


Our whiskey is carefully and proudly sourced from a number of the best producers in the United States.
