Single Barrel Bloody Butcher Bourbon
European settlers in the southern United States blended their corn with a native variety. The result was a Bloody Butcher Corn: instantly recognizable for its striking deep red kernels and legendary fruity, buttery flavor. Unsuitable for industrial scale farming, this heirloom variety is grown by only a few farmers.
Our Bloody Butcher Bourbon celebrates our nation’s early agricultural heritage. We sourced Bloody Butcher corn from Castle Valley Mill in Doylestown, PA, just 25 miles from our distillery, and combined it with malted rye and barley from Deer Creek Malt House. This blend of corn, barley, and rye gives the bourbon a balanced flavor, with notes of milk chocolate, butter, leather, and stone fruit on the palate, and a dry spice on the finish.
For this limited release spirt, a 53 gallon barrel that originally held our Bourbon was filled with local maple syrup from Whiskey Hollow. Now it returned to us to put a sweet finishing touch on this light whiskey.
