100% local grain to the still; distilled and aged on site in Indiana at MGP where the whiskey ages 25% slower than on the West Coast and conforms to a traditional bourbon character of complex grain expression.
Unique for MGP is the 4 grain bourbon, the corn and rye provide the backbone, the wheat uplifts both aroma & flavor, and the barley harmonizes the three.
Straight Bourbon Whiskey, straight from the barrel, assembled, proofed and into the bottle. No charcoal or cold filtration.
49% ABV maintains persistent bourbon and grain flavors in an old fashioned, mint tulip or on ice.
Long-time vintners, lovers of spirits and enamored by gin, we began this journey to capture the essence of each ingredient to craft…spirits with spirit!
Using foragers and wildcrafters, we find our herbs at peak maturity. The ratio of each ingredient affects the synergy of the final aromas and flavors. A botanical mix that looks good on paper may not succeed, and only taste will tell. Wine generously allows you three to four weeks during the fermentation to get it right, while gin only gives you eight hours to bring out the individual character of the botanicals.
Our amazing journey has brought us to crafting spirits… We felt perfectly prepared for the challenge, after harvesting and bottling 48 vintages of wine in three countries.
TASTING NOTES Other botanicals: Cassia, Cubeb Pepper, Lemon Peel, Coriander and (fixative) botanicals to stabilize the Red Tea
