A good friend of mine stopped by the distillery last week and asked what will make our product any different from other Bourbon makers. Here are just a few of the things we do:

1) Our water comes directly out of the well with no treatment. Our well is 460 feet deep with 440 of that acting as a natural limestone filter. Almost no iron in our water.
2) Our grain is stone ground which operates at a lower heat and does less damage to the starch in the grain. Our corn is all non GMO.
3) Our still is a solid copper pot with all copper piping which removes the sulfides from the product.
4) Once we cut the heads and tails from each distillation we get rid of them, we do not redistill them trying to save money.

What these steps create is a smoother, better tasting bourbon than someone taking shortcuts!

Missouri law prohibits me from shipping spirits to other states but allows distillers from all other states to ship to Missouri? 🤔
