Penelope’s signature, award-winning Bourbon blend is finished in French Rosé casks for a refreshing, bright limited edition release.

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 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.

Penelope Bourbon Rosé Cask Finish starts with their award-winning Bourbon. So that’s where this story begins. Penelope Bourbon is a blend of three Bourbon Spirits — two with rye in the mash and one with wheat-based. Two of them are aged two years, one is aged three in barrels that have a #4 char on the staves and the heads have a #2 char.

Penelope Bourbon Rosé Cask Finish is this most signature of Spirits finished in French Rosé Wine barrels to develop a bright profile with a hint of tannin and sweetness. And this is a real limited edition treat — they only made 2400 bottles in total without chill-filtering at a very nice 47% ABV.

Ratings & Reviews
Nose for me was a citrusy caramel, smooth w just the right amount of alcohol bite. 1st taste I did get the Rosè influence then oak and spice which I like with a bourbon w a good amount of rye. Will buy more from this distillery.
