Sadler’s Peaky Blinders Whiskey is produced in Indiana, USA, but distilled in UK. This American Bourbon has aromas of buttered corn and honey. The whiskey leaves a peppery tingling sensation following a peach and vanilla kick. The final lasting taste is similar to that of a gingerbread or brown sugar.
The Peaky Blinders were a criminal gang based in Birmingham, during the Victorian era. Members of this gang wore a signature outfit including the famous peaked flat caps.
A number of violent street gangs such as the Blinders, the Sloggers and the Birmingham Boys became highly organised and had vast amounts of political control and social power. The most famous of all the gang leaders was probably Billy Kimber.
Billy Kimber was a relative of the Sadler family and the gangs back in 1900 regularly visited the Sadler’s pubs. As a result, the brand has dedicated the Peaky Blinder Spirits range to the gang, consisting of an Irish Whiskey, a Bourbon Whiskey, a Spiced Dry Gin and a Black Spiced Rum.
