Inspired by the smooth taste that defined the success of the original recipe, Cyrus Noble Bourbon Whiskey is rich and velvety with notes of caramel, toasted hazelnut, and buttery toffee. Thoughtfully distilled in small batches from a family mashbill recipe, each bottling reﬂects the spirit and character of a handmade, intimate, and unrushed production method.

CYRUS NOBLE & HAAS BROTHERS: A HISTORY
HAAS BROTHERS ESTABLISHED
1851: HAAS BROTHERS WHOLESALE GROCERIES ESTABLISHED
The year is 1851; the city, bustling San Francisco; the climate – pure gold! The City by the Bay was aglow from the famous Gold Rush of 1849 as Leopold Loupe and Kalman Haas set their sights on its lustrous streets. Loupe partnered with Haas and the two German natives began a general–store variety of business, Loupe & Haas. Together, they supplied groceries on the corner of Davis and California streets. In 1865, love beckoned Loupe to return to Europe where he married and remained. Over time, Loupe & Haas became a family affair for Kalman when his brothers Charles and Samuel, and cousins Jacob, Samuel, Abe, and William integrated. The firm became Haas Brothers Wholesale Groceries. Their burgeoning success was renowned in the wholesale commerce business.

Searchlight, Nevada – A prospector named John Coleman walked into a roaring mining camp. Like many prospectors, he was looking to trade a claim for anything else he could find useful. In this case, he traded a claim for one bottle of Cyrus Noble Whiskey, the “best bourbon in town.” The claim was developed into a rich mine, called the Cyrus Noble Mine, and yielded over $250,000 in gold.
1915: HAAS BROTHERS MOVES TO A NEW BUILDING
