About our drink:

Belle Meade Bourbon

To ensure that no other Bourbon in the world tastes like Belle Meade Bourbon, we created a proprietary blend using different high-rye content mash bills and complementary yeast strains. Each batch of our well-aged proprietary blend creates the signature flavor profile that makes Belle Meade Bourbon the award-winning Bourbon of choice for the discerning whiskey drinker.

The high-rye blend of Belle Meade was designed to make it a versatile Bourbon.  It shines whether served neat, with a splash, or on the rocks but it’s also outstanding in a well-made cocktail. The high rye content and 90.4 bottling proof helps Belle Meade Bourbon to stand up to mixers that often mask other Bourbons, thus making it the perfect Bourbon for your favorite classic or craft cocktail creation.

About the Topic:

We talk about the effects of venial sin from the lessons of a spiritual master, Fr. Garrigou-Langrange. In his book, which is a collection of retreat talks, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange gives us a blueprint for progress in the spiritual life. We discuss the damage venial sin actually has on a person, particularly the effects of intentional venial sin.
