About Town

Bourbon Heritage

   When a Kentucky girl found herself living in Arkansas, homesick and missing that feeling of comfort only found in familiar roots, smells, and tastes – the solution was to create a product that she could bring to Arkansas that felt like home.

   Cara Blaize Osborne loves bourbon, music, her Kentucky home in Carter County and most of all her husband Steve. By training, she is a nurse midwife, holds a doctorate in Public Health and is a licensed helicopter pilot. In her day job, she teaches entrepreneurship at the University of Arkansas. Steve Brooks found his perfect partner in Cara and together they live life to its fullest right here in Arkansas with their merry band of 5 kids and dog Ryder. In the midst of the pandemic, these two gypsy souls went a whole year without even a toe in the Bluegrass which produced a mean case of homesickness. This batch is their ode to home and a way of bringing the best of Kentucky to bourbon fans near and far.

   Blaize and Brooks Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a subtle blend that drinks easy for 100 proof. The notes of fruits and florals are a welcome surprise without losing the traditional essence of bourbon. Notes of citrus and vanilla. Not the same oak and caramel bomb you might have come to expect. Most important– it finishes with a great “Kentucky Hug.”

   Find this, along with a wide variety of bourbons and spirits at O’Looney’s Wine & Liquor.
