Ezra Brooks is a brand of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. It is primarily bottled at 40% abv (80 U.S. proof) or 45% abv (90 U.S. proof).[2]

The Ezra Brooks brand is owned by Luxco of St. Louis, Missouri (formerly the David Sherman Company); which does not own a distillery. Ezra Brooks is distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky by Heaven Hill Distilleries for Luxco.

In films[edit]

  • A billboard advertising the Ezra Brooks brand was featured in the film The Sting. This was an anachronism, however. The film was set in 1936 while the Ezra Brooks brand would not appear for another 20 years.
