    Pinhook Bourbon War Vertical Series - Release Dates

    Pinhook Bourbon released the "Bourbon War Vertical Series" first bottle in August 2019 and it will be a yearly vertical release of MGP (Lawrenceburg, Indiana) produced bourbon all distilled in 2015. The mash bill is 75% corn, 20.5% rye, and 4.5% malted barley.  150 Barrels will be released to 23 states. 

    Each year another set (150 barrels) from the same group of barrels distilled in 2015 will be released for up to a total of 9 releases and ending with a 12 year in 2027.  MSRP is $50 for the first release in 2019. Each subsequent release, the MSRP is estimated to go up an additonal $5-$10 due to storage costs.

    Bourbon War (bottle) was named after a current racing thoroughbred. Bourbon War (horse) is a 4 year old colt who ran in the 2019 Preakness and 2019 Belmont Stakes.

    Pinhook Distillery (although as a not distilling contractor) launched operations in 2014 with the first release called "Bourbon Courage", it is a 6year bourbon that was followed by six subsequent releases from the same batch of bourbon barrels every six months. "Bourbon Resolution", which was released in the fall of 2017, was the last release of those barrels/batch. Pinhook has also informed us on the launch of a rye whiskey - vertical series, with the first 50 barrels of 4year rye expected to be released in spring of 2020.
