Unique flavors of Hungarian Wine in a premium Straight Rye.
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.
This bottling is part of their Cooper Series that takes their Straight Rye Whiskey around the world with finishes in Wine casks from the world’s finest Wine regions. For this limited-edition offering, a 6YO Straight Rye from MGPI is finished with the “Wine of Kings” in the words of Louis XIV, bringing you the late harvest notes of the Tokaji Wine from Hungary. We loved this one so much that we’ve selected a barrel just for you, dear Flaviarista, clocking in at a decent 53.5% ABV.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Penelope Bourbon Tokaji Cask Finish Flaviar Member Select and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
