Bourbon Empire


malted barley
Find Stock
This release has warm notes and an expansive palate with an enduring finish similar to previous releases. Vanilla bean, caramel, and walnut mix with notes of roasted coffee bean and maple delivering a smooth and complex experience.

Through a partnership with Bourbon Lane Stable LLC, each unique, limited edition lot of Pinhook Bourbon will showcase one extraordinary thoroughbred’s journey. The bottle’s individually hand-written and letter-pressed label reveals the horse’s statistics and profile.

The Bourbon Empire release is the same mashbill as previous releases but has about 8.5 years of barrel age on it. See if you can tell the difference that 6 more months of aging does from the Urban Bourbon.

Out inaugrural line of Pinhook Bourbon is paired with Bourbon Courage, whose stunning portrait can be found on the hand-strippled head cut on the bottle's label.

The son of Lion Heart out of the Carson City mare Shine Fourth, Bourbon Courage was foaled March 3, 2009, and stands 16.1 hands tall. As the stable star for Bourbon Lane Stable, BC has come in first four times, placed five times, and showed six times, with earnings in excess of $1,115,000, making his purchase price of $15,000 look like a steal, and therefore a perfect namesake for the winning, smooth taste of Pinhook's first release.

2015 promises to be Bourbon Courage's best year to date on the track, as his maturity and new tactical style will provide him with many Graded Stakes opportunities.
