Four fun things happening around the distillery

Erica Sagon

ONE: Our bar crew circled up to put the finishing touches on our new fall cocktail menu, which debuts Monday, Sept. 26. That means our summer menu will only be around for a few more days.  'Scuse us while we cry into our Dr. Feelgood.

TWO: We have some excellent news about these barrels of bourbon. Our head distiller Justin Hughey has given them the green light — time to bottle! Subscribe to our newsletter, because that's where we'll reveal the release date this week. 

THREE: Did you know that the first spirit we ever made — Vodka — is still our best-selling? It is rated 93 points by Wine Enthusiast, higher than Tito's, Grey Goose, Ketel One and basically ever other vodka you've had. We bottled our latest batch this week as we always do: by filling four bottles at a time on our small bottling line, then labeling, capping, sealing and boxing all by hand.

FOUR: Here's a fun little project we're excited about! We've partnered with our friends at Upland Brewing Co. here in Bloomington to make a stout liqueur that we'll release the last weekend of October. Here's our head distiller Justin Hughey (left) and bartender Kevin Hinkle (right) sampling some just this week.
