Clarksville, TN (December 1, 2017)…Old Glory Distilling Company is pleased to announce the release of their first batch of Old Glory Bourbon Whiskey available for an online pre-order purchase beginning Sunday, December 10, 2017. Old Glory, a Tennessee-based artisan spirit company, aged a very select amount of this bourbon in small batch 10 gallon casks to give the public an early taste of their premium whiskey scheduled for release in 2018.
This first batch is being pulled from 10 gallon casks vs. the typical 25 gallon and 53 gallon barrels. Smaller casks age spirits in a shorter amount of time than larger barrels due to the ratio of surface of area of wood to volume of liquid. Old Glory Bourbon Whiskey is a true “Grain-to-Glass” product, meaning it was mashed, fermented, distilled, aged, and bottled by Old Glory Distilling Co. in Clarksville, TN. The Old Glory Bourbon Whiskey mash bill is 73% Corn, 19% Rye, and 8% Malted Barley. This spirit is cooked using the “Sweet Mash” process vs. “Sour Mash”, and it is distilled using a traditional copper pot still. The unaged spirit entered the barrel at 115 Proof, and it will be bottled at 90 Proof. This limited release will consist of only around 1000 bottles.
