The latest multi-award-winning cask strength Bourbon from Penelope is another stunning gem of tastiness.

Mike Paladini and his wife Kerry had long agreed that if they had a daughter she would be named Penelope. In 2018 they had that daughter, named her as intended, and founded Penelope Bourbon at the same time along with Mike’s childhood friend Danny Polise. As many start-up Spirits companies do, they have launched with a little outside help. In this case distilling and aging in Indiana at MGP and expert blending and bottling assistance from Castle Rock in Kentucky — whom they proudly call part of their team. And the team is working, with two successful releases under their belt and a fistful of awards already in hand.

Whenever we get our hands on a few cases of Penelope Cask Strength they sell out fast … so do NOT wait. This time we got a good allotment of Batch #7. Like it’s multi-award-winning siblings, it’s a blend of three Bourbon Spirits — two with rye in the mash and one with wheat-based. Each is aged from three and half to five years. All of the casks had a #4 char on the staves and a #2 char on the heads. This time it’s bottled uncut and non-chill-filtered at 57.6% ABV. We love the stuff, and we’re not alone. Batch #7 won a Double Gold in San Francisco, is a Top 100 Spirit of the year, and a bunch of other awards.

In November of 2015, MGP announced its first ever house brand — Metze’s Select Indiana Straight Whiskey. It is a blend of their high-Rye Bourbons, named after the Master Distiller who retired that year. It is not yet available on the market.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
