Steph Curry's career stats alone have solidified him as one of the greatest NBA players to date. In fourteen seasons, he's averaged 24.6 points, was selected to play in 8 All-Star games, won 2 MVP awards and helped lead the Golden State Warriors to 4 NBA championships. While most would be satisfied with that alone, the dad of three is now also entering his hat into the bourbon industry.
Curry recently unveiled his new Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Gentleman's Cut, which is slated to hit shelves soon. The 90 proof spirit, distilled in 500-gallon copper pot stills and then aged for 5 to 7 years in charred new white oak barrels, is near and dear to the point guard's heart, as he is said to have been involved in every aspect of its creation—from start to finish. The bourbon's profile is said to have notes of honey, fresh vanilla bean and rich caramel.
“Celebrations take on many different forms, from intimate gatherings to major milestones, and at the center of each memorable moment is a spirit rooted in history and tradition," Curry said in a statement. "I’m proud to have helped carefully craft a new signature Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Gentleman’s Cut. This rich, complex and bold bourbon is the perfect offering to commemorate life’s great occasions, and will be part of a raised-glass toasting moment in the lives of my fans, friends and family.”
The bourbon will retail for $80 for the 750ml bottle. There is no word on which spirit retailers will carry the brand.
