An out of this world marriage of Bourbon, Orange Curaçao and Gin.

It was in 2018 when Bill Straub and Bob D'Antoni, both Whiskey enthusiasts, founded the Four Gate Whiskey Company in Kentucky and launched their mission to release très petits batches of unique combinations of Whiskey and finish barrels. And boy did they mean it when they said unique. Partnering with Kelvin Cooperage, a family-owned barrel supplier founded in 1963 in Scotland and currently based in Louisville, the combinations of quality Whiskey blends and used barrels they put together are so exotic it almost seems like you didn't read it right. We guess it's like those funny-looking couples you'd never put together, but they just work.

Just like their second release Outer Loop Orbit. Would you, after looking at (and smelling) casks together with William Hornaday at the Cooperage, have picked what were originally Orange Curaçao barrels that a local distiller used to finish a batch of botanical Gin? Probably not. Luckily, at Four Gate Whiskey, they saw Curaçao's sticky sweetness and Gin's sharpness and immediately thought: yeah, this gives us strong John Glenn-tangy-80s vibes and definitely calls for a Bourbon. A blend of 5.5YO Kentucky Straight Bourbon and a 12YO High-Rye Kentucky Straight Bourbon was put to rest for a month and the result was mind-blowing. Bottled at 120.3 proof, non-chill filtered and with only 2,402 bottles released, this Bourbon is sure to take you on a trip to space.

Smartass Corner:
The name Outer Loop Orbit is dedicated to the Outer Loop street in Louisville where Kelvin Cooperage is located and to John Glenn who was the first American to orbit the Earth.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Ruddy Amber with bright orange notes.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Citrus and pine with black pepper spices in the background.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Tangy citrus with heavy cinnamon and baking spices, pine needles and a slight nuttiness.

Medium long, the citrus lingers on the periphery while black pepper and cinnamon intermingle with Gin notes of pine and juniper.
Ratings & Reviews
Much heavier on the orange than the gin. Drinks like a Manhattan on the rocks
Probably not a good whiskey for a purist this brings a flavor profile that at first seems way out of the box. The Gin and Orange Curacao flavors remind me of Sinatra's favorite Martini called Pepe Ruiz's Burning flame of Love, which was Fina Sherry, Stoli, garnished with burnt orange rinds. Not an everyday whiskey for me but one I want all my friends to try.
I love unique, and I love gin and orange, and this bourbon is truly the embodiment of all of those and more. The gin is prominent in both aroma and taste while the bourbon and orange curacao hover gently in the background. Amazingly smooth for the proof. I also got my hands on Batch 4 & Batch 6 and give them a 9-10. Four Gate is doing amazing things with whiskey and wood!
