Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon Essential Facts
- According to legend, treasury agent John E. Fitzgerald illegally pilfered the finest whiskies from warehouses before starting the Old Fitzgerald brand. That’s the larceny that gives Larceny its name.
- Larceny is made from corn, barley and wheat, giving it a sweeter and smoother flavor than most bourbons, which are made from corn, barley and spicier rye.
