“It’s not that life’s too
short, it’s that most of us
get started too late.”



Grandpa Sutton used to say that it’s not that life’s too short, it’s that most of us get started too late. At an age when most of us were being kids, he was already training horses, repairing shrimp boats and driving “borrowed” taxis. All the while, he spent his spare time making a bourbon that sang the praises of the South.

Sutton bourbon was a family affair, one that Grandpa Sutton, his brothers, daddy and paps all worked together to perfect. The batches were small and the taste was rich, deep and sweet. It was pure goodness right from the get-go.

But as years passed, that legendary mash recipe was lost. Fortunately, we still had those original bourbon-filled mason jars and that same deep passion for distilling the perfect pour.

With bourbon science on our side, we worked backwards to piece together that century-old family mash recipe, picking out the ingredients and techniques that gave Sutton bourbon its unmistakable taste. Turns out that Alabama corn, a sweet mash and a grain-to-glass approach were what set it apart. The bourbon legend was reborn.

Today, a century later, we’re proud to be using that same 100-year-old family mash recipe, and we’re proud to be following those same tried-and-true methods. It takes time and hard work, but it’s the way seven generations have gone about it. At Paul Sutton Bourbon®, we take our family traditions to heart.

After 100 years we’ve learned never to rush a good thing.
