Boom… done… finito hombre… you have just learned how to hit a home-run in the game of life.
Cooperstown is, of course, home to Cooperstown—the baseball museum and hall of fame. It is also home to Cooperstown Distillery. So what do you do if you are opening a small-batch craft distillery and spirit blending house in Cooperstown? You build it on a baseball theme of course! Then you sprinkle in a bit of other Cooperstown-ish things as well.
Gene Marra obviously loves his hometown. He founded Cooperstown Distillery to marry the twin passions of baseball and spirits. Today, they make BeanBall Borubon, Abner Doubleday Classic American Whiskey, and DoublePlay Vodka. The also produce Glimmerglass Vodka (named after a local art festival), Fenimore Gin (named after a Cooperstown Art Museum), and Sam Smith Boatyard Rum—you guessed it… named after a local lake attraction.
The bean-ball… a fearsome pitch thrown to teach the batter a lesson. Cooperstown Distillery Bean Ball Bourbon is a 100-proof shot of liquid Americana in a glass. Get yourself a bottle of this working-man’s drink, a couple of hot dogs, a box of Cracker Jacks, and a pretty girl. Boom… done… finito hombre… you have just learned how to hit a home-run in the game of life.
Cooperstown Distillery Bean Ball Bourbon is actually a combination of their small batch American Whiskey and Indiana Borubon. And yep… there is an age statement. This hooch is barrel-aged and 6 years old, and that is three times longer than Johnny-law insists. The only reason you do that is to ensure quality. So grab a bottle and sit yourself down next to that pretty girl and see if you can get to first base.
