The Kentucky Maid was created in 2005 by industry heavyweight Sam Ross. It's a subtle riff on another cocktail of his from 2004, the London Maid (aka Old Maid), where he substitutes bourbon in place of the London Maid’s gin. Ross has also created numerous modern classics such as the Paper Plane and the Penicillin.
