Our Flagship Bourbon

Here at Olde Raleigh Distillery, we’re in the business of making damn good whiskey. Actually, we’ve created one of the best bourbons in North Carolina. Olde Raleigh Whiskey Society is a unique, signature blended small-batch bourbon, rooted in 19th century Scottish traditions. Our Flagship Brand is a robust, flavorful 93 proof bourbon blend with a perfect balance of smooth and complex flavors. Using the finest ingredients and barrels from coast to coast, the essence of Olde Raleigh Whiskey Society is created using corn, barley, rye and wheat.  With notes of allspice, caramel, malt chocolate and oak undertones, you’ll see how we pack an exceptional experience into every bottle. We guarantee that sipping this unforgettable bourbon will only leave you wanting more. Visit Olde Raleigh Distillery to pick-up your own bottle of our Flagship Brand or try one of our other small batch releases.
