made from pure limestone-filtered water, sweet corn, rye, malted barley, and aged in new charred oak barrels in the rolling hills of Kentucky. We select the best barrels once they reach the peak of maturity and hand bottle in small batches at 93 proof. We do not filter our bourbon which allows all the depth, complexity, and character of the barrel to pass through to your glass.
93 Proof (ABV 46.5%)
We are a small whiskey company based in Bardstown, Kentucky, the heart of bourbon country.We began as an idea in 2008 when the founder, Darren Lincoln, wanted to create a whiskey company that produces special bourbons and ryes in small batches, unfiltered, and high proof. It took 5 years of hard work and a lot of money to bring Cotton Hollow Distilling bourbons to the store shelves but in 2013, our first batch, a 4 year old Kentucky Bourbon at 93 proof hit the shelves in Texas and the entire batch was sold out of Texas in just 2 months.
We work hard ever day to make sure that the whiskeys that we produce live up the expectations of our fans and our founder’s principals.
About Our Name:
The name Cotton Hollow comes from a real place and is our source for inspiration. Cotton Hollow was one of the first cotton processing mills in the New World. It was built at a time when the British forbid the colonies from processing their own cotton. The people that built Cotton Hollow showed a strong independence and a desire to defy the world’s greatest power to do what they thought was right.
This unique recipe and traditional process produces a bourbon that stands out, smooth, balanced, sweet, with strong notes of spice.
