The brand, owned by importer-marketer Luxco, also has expanded its portfolio with the introduction of Ezra Brooks Bourbon Cream.
Luxco, formerly called the David Sherman Company, is headquartered in
St. Louis, MO. It owns no distilleries, so its Ezra Brooks brand is
distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky under contract with Heaven Hill
The new item is a seasonal spirit to be available in fall and winter months when its notes of caramel, nutmeg, and cinnamon may be most welcome. It will be available in 750ml bottles, at a very mild 12.5% alcohol by volume (25 proof) and a suggested retail price of $12.99 to $14.99.
