Attention, Penelope Bourbon made a batch exclusively for our Advent Calendar.

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 launched it with a little outside help. In this case, the distilling and aging happens in Indiana at MGP and expert blending and bottling assistance comes from Castle Rock in Kentucky — whom they proudly call a part of their team. And the team is working, with two successful releases under their belt and a fistful of awards already in hand.

The Penelope Bourbon Barrel Strength just seems to get better with each batch. Of course, every batch is special but this batch is particularly close to our hearts  — it’s been crafted exclusively for Flaviar’s Advent Calendar. Obviously, the folk at Penelope Bourbon had to put their best game forward. It's a blend of 3 MGP Bourbons comprised of 4 grains (corn, wheat, rye, and malt), aged 3.5 to 4.5 years in new American oak with a #4 char on the staves and #2 char on the heads. Naturally, it's uncut and non-chill-filtered. The 115-proof Bourbon is a little gem of a Whiskey with plenty of awards to show for it, but most importantly ― it's just a mighty fine sipper.

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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
