It began in 1847 with a bold, satisfying taste that would make Indiana the rye capital of the world. For nearly 200 years, Lawrenceburg’s master distillers and blenders have been perfecting the original handcrafted rye blends in one of America’s last Prohibition-era distilleries. Rossville Union is a return to the golden age of rye with an authentic taste that could only come from Whiskey City.
Baker’s Bourbon is a small batch, Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey distilled and selected in the traditions of Baker Beam, grandnephew of the legendary Jim Beam. Today, Bakers is still made using this very technique and is aged only in the most select rackhouses for a robust bourbon flavor with a silky, smooth finish.
Lean, dry, and spicy, this seven-year-old small-batch Bourbon may be reminiscent of rye whiskey. It has a mild maple scent and complex layers of vanilla, cigar wrapper, tea, and orange peel, with a spicy finish. The alcohol feels moderate, even mellow, for over 100 proof.
