The Manifest Whiskey Project was an early concept thought up by the founders as a secondary line of spirit that could bring unique, quality sourced whiskey to market. Every year we will release a new selection of barrels that will range across the whiskey gamut.
The 2016 release showcased easily one of the best American whiskey offerings; Bourbon. We stumbled across these twelve barrels of high-rye bourbon which originated at the old Seagrams facility in Lawrenceburg, IN. We purchased them as a nine year old bourbon where they finished aging in our facility. For the 2016 release, we teamed up with Blake Riber from Bourbonr.com to join in the adventure. Our entire team tasted through all 12 barrels and selected 5 that easily stood apart on their own. Those 5 will be released as a single barrel bottling. The remaining 7 barrels were blended in varying degrees to make up our small batch release of this label.
We are always on the lookout for exceptional examples of whiskey and look forward to bringing you future selections and blends.
