Bourbon Courage

  • Corn


  • Rye


  • Malted Barley


  • Proof


An exceptionally rich and balanced bourbon with glinting copper notes and a warm, honey undertone. it delivers an elegant, deep taste from start to finish. 

Each Fall Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each of which is connected to a promising young thoroughbred horse. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof each release to be as unique as the horse on the label. The result is an annual vintage of Pinhook Bourbon and Pinhook Rye that become instant collectibles. And while it is impossible to know if the horse on the bottle will go all the way to the Kentucky Derby, there is no gamble on the quality of what's inside. Pinhook’s premier batch of 5,000 bottles is paired with the Graded Stakes winner Bourbon Courage. Each subsequent lot of Pinhook will be dedicated to a signature thoroughbred’s story, resulting over time in a highly collectible stable of exquisite bottles—if the collector can resist drinking the contents.

Our inaugural release of Pinhook Bourbon is paired with Bourbon Courage, son of of Lion Heart and Shine Forth, by Carson City.

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.
