Handcrafted from scratch, this signature spirit is made in small batches and barrel aged for over three years in new white American oak casks. It's America’s first Dark Rye Pumpernickel Whiskey. When you raise a glass with friends, let them know it's proudly from the Middle West.
TRADITIONAL FOUNDATIONS. INNOVATIVE OPERATIONS. We were founded in 2008, and opened our distillery for commercial production in 2010. Building on four generations of distilling traditions, we added our own deep experience in marketing and manufacturing, and focused on elevating the distinctive flavors of the Ohio River Valley. Our artisan spirits honor our roots; and reflect our originality as makers, our integrity as producers, and our passion for the craft of producing spirits from grain to glass.
