Small-batch, high-corn Bourbon from Kansas with a spirited kick.

The story of Union Horse Distillery starts with four siblings and a friend. Eric, Damian, Patrick, and Mary Garcia-Gallagher and entrepreneur Kris Hennessy founded the distillery in 2010 near Kansas City, Kansas, under the name "Dark Horse Distillery." But it turns out that a few other similar businesses had similar names. All the legal wrangling was finalized in 2015 and the business has operated as Union Horse since then. Their family-owned and operated business consistently churns out a quality range of five award-winning American Whiskeys and Vodka.

Union Horse Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey is all made on-site in a 500-gallon column pot-still named "Chester Copperpot" — definitely small-batch stuff. Uniquely, the sour-mash bill is 80% corn and 20% rye with no barley at all. Instead, they use active enzymes to smooth-out the fermentation process. The final Spirit is aged between two and five years in new oak and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
