Ingram, Talnua, Chattanooga Whiskey, Eagle Rare, Fresh Bourbon, Dancing Goat, Blue Run Spirits, and much, much more.

Hotaling & Co.’s Hirsch Whiskey Brand Has Introduced The Bivouac Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Distilled in Bardstown, Kentucky, 95% of the blend has a mashbill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley, while 5% of the blend is distilled from a high malted barley mash aged for at least eight years. The custom mashbill is inspired by the A.H. Hirsch 16-Year-old Reserve. Retailing for a suggested price of $55, The Bivouac is currently in select markets, with national availability as of October 1

Jim Beam to Invest $400m in Bourbon-to-biogas Project

New Liberty Distillery Announces Launch of Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Straight Bourbon Whiskey 

New Liberty Distillery is thrilled to announce the release of Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Straight Bourbon Whiskey, aged for three years and distilled using heritage grains including bright-red Pennsylvania corn varietals, malted rye, and malted barley using a sourdough starter from local breadbasket High Street Philly. Ringing in at 47.5% (95 proof), Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Bourbon is now available in a 200ml size for $24.99 across the state of Pennsylvania. Created from a base of 70% Bloody Butcher corn, 27% malted rye, and 3% malted barley, the spirit pulls aromas that are reminiscent of leather tobacco pouches, pound cake, and dried leaves. Its palate notes are hearty, with starting hints of spice that round off into a warm autumn reminder of an apple cinnamon doughnut, dusted with nutmeg and crystalized sugar. Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Bourbon is best enjoyed sipped neat or in a number of classic bourbon cocktails.

The Biggest Bourbon Brands and Companies That Own Them [infographic] by Vinepair

In order to navigate our way through the labyrinth of bourbon’s and their parent companies, VinePair produced this family tree to demonstrate who owns what in the bourbon world. To make things a bit easier to make sense of, we’ve left out independently owned brands — not only because there are too many to fit on one page, but also because many source rather than distill their own whiskey (although some of the brands in this graphic have, at some point, sourced juice from other distilleries).

Well, thats it for now. Until next time... Drink More Bourbon!
