Pinhook —

Collaboration Series

In Pinhook’s Collaboration Series, we partner with luminaries working in other sensory-rich fields in a venture that epitomizes the curiosity-based approach Pinhook was founded on: sourcing great barrels of whiskey and meticulously crafting the blend and proof that best brings out their finest characteristics. By exploring the possibilities of whiskey from varied perspectives, the Series’ collaborators invariably hit on something new and exciting. With these very limited releases, we continue to expand the possibilities of American whiskey, and pay tribute to the distillers and palates we most admire.

André Mack

André Hueston Mack is the founder and award-winning winemaker of Maison Noir Wines and was the first African-American to be named Best Young Sommelier in America by Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.

Sean and André met while working at the lauded New York restaurant Per Se and have been friends ever since. Their collaboration on two five-barrel batches, blended from the ten Wyoming Whiskey barrels Pinhook purchased in 2012, is a tribute to André’s superlative palate, his long-standing friendship with Sean, and the inspiration Pinhook draws from the world of wine.
