Our Story

175 years of brand values built in our dna

For nearly two centuries, people worldwide have trusted the Busch family’s standard of excellence. Now Steven Busch, Founder of King Spirits and the son of August A. Busch III, is carrying that legacy into the world of distlled spirits with the launch of Hope Town Vodka. Handcrafted in small batches in Charleston, South Carolina, and inspired by a tiny village in Elbow Cay, located in the Abaco chain in the northern Bahamas.

Our Inspiration

We partnered with globally acclaimed marine artist and intrepid fishing adventurer Carey Chen to create art for Walker’s Cay Bourbon. His lifetime of tournament fishing, together with his unique ability to translate those experiences into vivid and detailed art gives us an eye-catching look and a lifestyle connection that distinguishes us from the rest. Carey is the brand’s main Lifestyle Ambassador. Staying true to our core, we are putting a significant focus on visibility and sponsorships at key fishing tournaments and boat shows.
