In 2020, Brian Gelfo, a longtime bourbon enthusiast and industry insider, decided it was finally time to listen to what his wife, Ayryn, and closest friends had been telling him forever...to follow his dreams and do his own thing! Using his years of experience and knowledge of bourbon and rye whiskey he embarked on a plan to bring new and unique whiskeys to market. Partnering with his friend J Paul Tucker, a Louisville icon in the cigar industry, they created Broadleaf Whiskey to make these dreams a reality. In September 2022, we launched Brothers of the Leaf Finished Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys. Sadly, in January 2023 we lost our co-founder and friend, J Paul, to cancer. However, Broadleaf Whiskey will continue to deliver great whiskeys to market and forever remember his contributions to the company.
Through the sourcing of premium barrels and the contract distilling of our own select recipes combined with unique finishing, we will be bringing to market a variation of whiskeys that will satisfy those just beginning their whiskey journey and those with the most experienced and sophisticated palates
Broadleaf Whiskey will be offering the finest and most unique Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys hand selected from the best distilleries in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and others.
