The Mash Bill Identifies as Fluid. Deal with It.

This has always been a family affair. It was, after all, founded by soon-to-be parents of little Penelope, Kerry, and Mike, who teamed up with a childhood friend - thus, both Penelopes were born, eventually, out of pure love and passion. Their mission? To make Straight Bourbon Whiskey for everybody. It is distilled at MGP's Lawrenceburg distillery, bottled, and blended at Castle Key, but the casks are sourced from the Speyside Cooperage. It takes a (few) village(s) to raise a tasty baby, and Penelope's ol' folks live by that saying. It seems.

The Toasted series is an experiment of sorts, so sit down, take a sip, and observe. There's the Penelope base, the 4 grain, 3 Mash Bills Straight Bourbon Whiskey fully matured in American oak barrels. Then the plot thickens. The blend is then finished in custom charred and toasted barrels. Each batch is unique. So is every bottle. Let the exploration begin.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
