Every fall Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each of which is connected to a promising young thoroughbred horse. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof each release to be as unique as the horse on the label. The result is an annual vintage of Pinhook Bourbon and Pinhook Rye that become instant collectibles. And while it is impossible to know if the horse on the bottle will go all the way to the Kentucky Derby, there is no gamble on the quality of what’s inside.

Bourbon Country is the 8th release of bourbon from Pinhook. It’s been aged more than 3 years at Castle and Key Distillery in Millville, KY and was blended and proofed by Marianne Barnes and Sean Josephs.
