Jack Daniel's   
Jack Daniel Distillery  ·  Lynchburg, TN
We do things a little differently around here – and that’s what gives Jack Daniel’s its distinctive character. We charcoal mellow our whiskey drop by drop, then let it age in our own handcrafted barrels. And we don’t follow a calendar. Our Tennessee Sippin’ Whiskey is ready only when our tasters say it is. We use our senses, just like Jack Daniel himself did. In fact, more than a century later, our Tennessee Whiskey is still judged the same way. By the way it looks. By the way it smells. And, of course, by the way it tastes. 80 Proof

Journeyman Distillery Featherbone Bourbon   
Journeyman Distillery  ·  United States
Locally grown Midwest organic corn makes up the lion’s share of this fine bourbon. It’s balanced out with a healthy dose of Michigan wheat to provide a soft sweetness, a dash of rye to provide a little spice, and a bit of barley malt to smooth it all out. Our Featherbone Bourbon has a classic vanilla aroma and sweetness with hints of malt, spice and tobacco.

Journeyman Distillery Last Feather Rye   
Journeyman Distillery  ·  United States
This bottle defines heritage; during prohibition, people made rye: it survived. The first batch of this rye was made in Chicago but eventually production was moved to the Featherbone Factory. The Last Feather Rye has found a permanent home but the history of the spirit is important: lasting. Distiller Comments: In the summer of 2010, I spent a period of time training in Chicago at Koval Distillery (located in the Ravenswood neighborhood), learning the trade but also putting rye whiskey in barrels. That time was invaluable in terms of education, but it also allowed Journeyman Distillery the opportunity to have a wonderfully aged rye whiskey to bottle and sell for the opening of our distillery. Product Information: These days we distill our organic rye whiskey at our Three Oaks, Michigan distillery using the same recipe we perfected back in Chicago. The 90-proof whiskey is made from a blend of Midwestern rye and wheat with just a touch of barley added to round out the flavor. The whiskey matures in new white oak barrels where it develops its signature flavor. Last Feather Rye is a fruit-forward whiskey that finishes with a gentle crescendo of spice and pepper from the rye. Depending upon individual palettes various flavors including banana, vanilla, and caramel may entertain and tingle your taste buds to accompany the ever-present warmth, dryness, and spice that rye brings to the forefront. Best Enjoyed: If you’re lucky enough to have one of the 800 limited release bottles from the first batch sitting on your dining room table, I’d say, it’s best enjoyed with close friends.
