Saint Cloud ™is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Crafted by Ray Walker using his unique perspective and vision from making Grand Cru wines in Burgundy, France. Ray has excelled in making wines of character, blending handwork and tradition. His focus is to bring a unique vision to the Kentucky Bourbon landscape. Saint Cloud is a labor of love, created to bridge the connection to Ray’s family which dates back in Kentucky since the early nineteenth-century.
Ray’s great-great-grand father, Lewis Walker, fought in the Civil War for Kentucky’s “Company 48” Mounted Infantry, signing up for duty the same day that the battle of Gettysburg began. Lewis’ father, James, was in the War of 1812, a battle that saw the U.S. allied with France. James would become a Francophile, giving two of Lewis’ brothers French names, Napoleon Bonaparte Walker (a Union Soldier in the Civil war) and Lafayette Walker. Their other brother, Samuel Houston Walker was also in the Civil War, fighting for the Confederacy at the same time.
Our Bourbon is unique for many reasons, one of which is refinement. The bourbons that wear the Saint Cloud label are produced on a micro- scale. We target quality and refinement, without compromise. All of our bourbons are sourced at varying stages, depending on the specific goals we are aiming for with each bourbon. We focus on providing unique experiences that are guided by our vision as well as our direct input on the development of our bourbons.
