Spring Mill Bourbon Whiskey
This straight bourbon is pleasantly sweet with notes of spicy rye, vanilla custard, brown sugar, sweet tea, and sweet corn. Notes of floral spices and a touch of citrus and wood shavings accompany the nose. Perfect neat, on the rocks, or accompanying your favorite bourbon inspired cocktail.
Spring Mill Bourbon, named after the site of one of Indiana’s oldest and most historic distilleries. The original Spring Mill Distillery at one point had several gristmills, a woolen mill, a saw mill and a distillery that produced Bourbon. In the early nineteenth century Bourbon from Spring Mill was rafted down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and sold into the markets in New Orleans. To honor the historic Spring Mill Distillery, we bottle our Spring Mill Bourbon in traditional ceramic bottles made from fired clay molds. Today, our Spring Mill Bourbon is still produced in Indiana, but is now made at Heartland Distillery. Where it gets to the market a bit quicker, but we still take our time to produce this wonderful Handcrafted Small Batch Bourbon.
Spring Mill Bourbon is handcrafted with corn, rye, and a bit of malted barley. It is then aged in new charred oak barrels. Then a portion of the bourbon is finished in a second set of new charred oak barrels to give this twice barreled bourbon additional character and flavor.
Although Bourbon may be produced anywhere in the United States, it is most commonly associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, where it has been produced since the late 18th century. Made from a mash bill containing at least 51% corn, the Bourbon Whiskey distillate must be aged in new, charred white oak barrels. Bourbon Whiskeys are bottled at eighty proof (40% abv) or higher and cannot contain any added color or flavor. A versatile spirit that can be sipped neat, with water or on the rocks, it also performs nicely added to cocktails like the Old Fashioned.
