Old Whiskey River 6 Year Old is a marketing collaboration between The Heaven Hill Distillery and American country music legend Willie Nelson. It is therefore marketed as more than just a bourbon whisky – it also includes a CD with some of Willie Nelson’s songs and a guitar pick.

As this is a bourbon whisky website however, we are going to start with what is in the bottle. The grains (corn, barley and rye) used to make Old Whiskey River 6 Year Old were grown on farms located less than 100 miles from the Heaven Hill Distillery. They are all family-owned farms, a tribute to Willie Nelson’s support of Farm Aid, an organisation in the US that supports independent, family-owned farms.

Once distilled, Old Whiskey River 6 Year Old is, as the name suggest, then aged for six years. It is bottled in small batches under the supervision of Heaven Hill’s master distillers Craig and Parker Beam.

It all makes for a quite superb bourbon whisky. It has won accolades from the industry and is much admired both as a low-cost alternative to more popular sipping bourbons; and as a mixing bourbon.

Old Whiskey River 6 Year Old is more than just bourbon because of the tie-up with Willie Nelson. The distillery says the country music star was involved in the development of the brand.

A spokesperson for the distillery said: “We sent samples to him while he was touring on the road to get his thumbs-up on the different batches until we finally came up with a bourbon that he'd put his name on, one that he calls smooth, sweet and mellow.”

This edition of Old Whiskey River 6 Year comes with a CD and a signed guitar pick. The CD includes songs from Willie Nelson’s album The Great Divide plus the 1978 song Old Whiskey River.

Old Whiskey River lyrics:

Whiskey river, take my mind
Don't let a memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey river, take my mind
And don't let a memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me
