Rabbit Hole was founded in 2012 by Kaveh Zamanian, an Iranian-born Ph.D. psychologist.  Kaveh grew up in Southern California before moving to Chicago, where he met his wife Heather, a Louisville native with a passion for bourbon.  Heather is credited with converting Kaveh from his love of scotch to bourbon, the native spirit of her hometown.


A crescendo of rye spice briefly surges in the finish, with sweet flavors of vanilla, caramel, and gingerbread rushing back quickly.  Medium-length, it ends on a sweet note which is consistent considering the rest of the sip.


Bourbon is a type of American whiskey, a barrel-aged distilled liquor made primarily from corn and often rounded out with malted barley and rye (though some brands utilize wheat).  The name “bourbon” was not applied until the 1850s, and did not become widespread until the 1870s.  Bourbon must be made within the United States, be composed of at least 51% corn, and aged in new charred oak barrels.
