Five Brothers Bourbon Review

A month or so ago, Heaven Hill released Square 6 Bourbon which is sold only at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. It was the first bourbon to ever be released to the public that was distilled in the artisanal distillery at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. Next, it was the newly renamed and renovated Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience’s turn to get its own bourbon. At the time of the grand opening of the new visitor center, Five Brothers Bourbon made its first appearance. It is sold only at the Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience and initially was in short supply, although now it seems to be more readily available.

New Bardstown Bourbon Company Bottling Facility Tour

Business at Bardstown Bourbon Company is booming. This relatively new distillery located in the heart of Kentucky’s bourbon country has been filling a gaping hole in the world of bourbon since it began distilling in 2016. Bardstown has meticulously built a large portion of its business model on contract distilling; while contract distilling is certainly not new in the industry, the Company has raised the bar by offering its Custom Distillation Program. Now a non-distilling producer has almost endless options when they partner with Bardstown Bourbon to produce their product. From mashbill to yeast, fermentation time to distillation specs, and barreling to warehousing, every customer can choose their own preferences all the while being advised and supported by a company teaming with years of experience in the whiskey industry. Today, the entire process, grain to glass, can all take place on campus. Please join us on our Bardstown Bourbon Company bottling facility tour.

Sagamore Spirit Tequila Finish Rye Review

Sagamore Spirit Tequila Finish Rye is the latest finished release from Sagamore Spirit. Sagamore Spirit is a distillery located in Baltimore, MD, established in 2017. They are dedicated to producing Maryland style rye. What is Maryland style rye, you might ask? Well, the definition is a bit loose, but it is generally a rye made with a relatively high percentage of corn, as opposed to the Pennsylvania (Monongahela) Rye, which is made with a much higher percentage of rye. There is usually a small amount of malted grain added for enzymatic purposes, and that grain may be malted barley. Sagamore Spirit is currently distilling their own rye, but at the moment is using rye sourced from a well known Indiana distillery. Sagamore Spirit utilizes a blend of two different rye mash bills, which then get proofed down with Sagamore Farm spring water.

Bluegrass Distillers Pickleback Bourbon Review

Have you ever had a pickleback? It’s a shot of whiskey chased by a shot of pickle brine. I sort of winced at the idea, but then I remembered that I’m a big fan of Russian food accompanied a nice shot (or 10) of vodka chased by pumpernickel and a pickle. So I was interested in giving this new Bluegrass Distillers Pickleback bourbon a try.
