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.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
