Old Dominick to Release Small Batch Bourbon Series

Beginning in September, Old Dominick will be releasing a series of Small Batch Bourbons from their estate-produced distillate. Master Distiller, Alex Castle, says this of the release, “As a native Kentuckian, I couldn’t resist producing a true bourbon in Tennessee, but I knew it  had to be unique. That’s where the high-rye mash bill came in. Instead of deciding on one singular bottle  proof for an initial release, I thought it would be more fun to experiment with blending four unique  batches at four unique proofs. With proofs ranging from as low as 90 to as high as 117, consumers can  experience every aspect and profile that this singular mash bill can provide.”
