Carefree Bourbon is a unique and special whiskey, made with a masterful blend of 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye, and 4 percent malt. It is aged over two years in new American Oak barrels, resulting in a rich character with hints of spice on the finish. What makes Carefree Bourbon truly special though is its water. The water used in its blending and proofing process has a wonderful mineral composition that's high in calcium and low in sulfur and iron - contributing to the bourbon's final weight, texture, and flavor. So if you're looking for a truly exceptional bourbon experience, look no further than Elysian Desert Distilleries' Carefree Bourbon.
The best ideas start as conversations among friends. This one started in 2016 in a Scottsdale restaurant over a glass of bourbon. Renea McQuiggan and her husband Mike were talking about how friendships are often created and strengthened through shared positive experiences.
Renea and Mike came away with an idea that became their passion and their vision. They decided to create a line of handcrafted premium bourbons and vodkas that are authentic, natural, and superior in quality. These spirits should help foster friendships and enable positive experiences to be enjoyed.
They agreed that experiences that are uncommon are memorable, and experiences that are comforting are delightful. They believe we should enjoy every moment of those delightfully uncommon experiences because they are so special. This is the inspiration behind the creation of Carefree Spirits Distillery and the experiences it offers: Enjoy every moment.
In the pursuit of the Company's vision, they decided that the quality of their bourbons and vodkas must be without compromise. That uncompromised quality took the family years to develop, never shortcutting on ingredients or processes.
Authenticity, natural ingredients, and superior qualityare uncommon and delightful attributes in today's mass market. The McQuiggan family hopes this commitment brings you many experiences to enjoy.
Your experience begins with a delightful aroma of caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, and cream.
Those enjoyable scents extend to a taste that starts out soft and smooth on the palate, followed by a light rye spice that lingers nicely in the finish. Pure delight that goes down warm without a harsh bite.
