The 2021 vintage of Pinhook’s flagship rye brims with aromas of apricot, cinnamon, and eucalyptus followed by a rich palate of candied licorice, caramel, and orange peel.

Each year, Pinhook releases a new vintage of bourbons and ryes. Every expression is the best representation of our barrels at that moment in time, and dedicated to a promising young thoroughbred. Through a combination of careful barrel selection, blending in small batches, and meticulous proofing, each Pinhook vintage has a personality as unique as the horse on the label.

The 2021 flagship rye release is the inaugural expression of Pinhook using our proprietary mashbill. Developed, distilled and aged over 2 years at Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, KY, our latest rye was blended and proofed by Sean Josephs, our Master Taster.

Our 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.
