About Max Wastler

Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon

We call him our Cultural Bloodhound.

By trade, he’s a storyteller and a retailer. He’s a son of the Midwest, but he’s lived and worked all over the world. He’ll show you a side of your city that you’ve never seen before. He’ll take you into the world of the maker. He’s a master assimilator, able to settle into foreign situations with relative ease. And he seeks out the best life has to offer.

Basil Hayden's®

Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.
