When Robert Hicks decided to add 'bourbon maker' to his long list of credentials, it seemed to those who know him to be a pretty obvious fit. After all, he has never hidden his passion for brown whiskey any more than he has his passion for the Civil War. What folks know is that when he sets his mind on something there is never any turning back. For many years, Robert served as a partner in the B. B. King's Blues Clubs across the country and was named 'Curator of Vibe' by BB King. So producing a really good bourbon, Tennessee made and Tennessee aged seemed like a logical step forward for Robert. Much thought went into how to connect his passion for bourbon with his passion for battlefield preservation. Out of it has come this rare, small batch bourbon.
