Bourbon Release set

If you want to try our 4-year-old Bottled in Bond Bourbon, make plans to join us April 28 for A Taste of Danville.

If you want to hear what others think about the taste, check out a video with people who participated in tasting the Bourbon and the Rye at our annual Valentine’s Day event. Watch the video

Our first Bourbon release will be a Single Barrel, Bottled in Bond, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The release will coincide with our annual spring event, A Taste in Danville.

A Taste in Danville, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. , will feature live music by Joslyn and The Sweet Compression and delicious food offerings. Area chefs, restaurants, caterers and food trucks will offer small portions of their signature dishes for sale as their “tastes.” The distillery’s taste will be its long-anticipated Kentucky Straight Bourbon. A limited supply of free samples will be available to the first few hundred visitors.

As part of our celebration, the gift shop will have a limited quantity of bottles for sale to the general public. The gift shop cost is $46 a bottle and sales are limited to two 750 ml bottles per person. The majority of Bourbon released at this event has been reserved by our Family Reserve members.

“Our Family Reserve members’ loyalty will be rewarded with the first numbered bottles encased in a special collector’s box from a release of only 40 barrels,” says Shane Baker, co-owner of the distillery with Dr. Pat Heist. The spring release will be the first 15 of the 40 barrels. Another 15 barrels will be bottled for a September release. The remaining 10 barrels will be released in December.
