Southern Cross Bourbon’s name was inspired and rooted after The Southern Cross constellation superimposed on the dagger. It represents the historic achievements of the Marines serving during the Pacific campaign of WWII, specifically those actions on Guadalcanal.
The Southern Cross remains a part of the legacy of the modern-day Marine Corps Raider units. Our bourbon is created of 45% Wheated Bourbon, 51% Corn and 4% Malted Barley which has aged for over 5 years and as a high end bourbon, is extremely smooth on the palate.
The team behind Southern Cross Bourbon and Crux Distillery came together after meeting and participating in the Marine Raider Memorial March. The team includes a Marine Recon Raider, Gold Star wife & Mother, an Emergency Room Nurse and Firefighter-Paramedic Marine Corps Veteran. Together the team worked hard to blend the perfect bourbon worthy of the history and lineage of the Marine Raiders.
Our slogan “May You Find Your Way Home” comes from the men of WWII using their navigation skills and paddling their rafts guided by the constellations so they could find their way home.
From our family to yours, “May You Find Your Way Home” and we sincerely hope you enjoy!
