The taste is in the name: smooth sailing.

Located in Lawrenceburg, Indiana since 1847, MGP Indiana distillery is one of the largest distillery operations in the United States. The building gives off medieval castle fortress vibes with a unique set of column stills that are several stories high and built into brick towers. Owned by Diageo, they produce almost every kind of Spirit you can imagine – until recently, exclusively for some of the top brands in the world, though. Deciding to finally step out of the shadows, MGP Indiana started putting out their own brands. And we’re glad they did.

Eight & Sand is a technical term that basically means smooth sailing. That is, if you’re driving a train. We find it a very fitting name for the experience of sipping this blend of Bourbon and Whiskies, each aged at least 4 years. It didn’t get this name just for its impeccable smoothness, though, it’s also a tribute to the American trail-blazing Spirit and the Transcontinental Railorad – a portion of the proceeds goes to supporting railroad museums. There’s no additives, colors, or flavors, just soft, sweet natural flavors of apple, nutmeg, treacle, and cinnamon.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
