Pinhook Vertical Series 8 Year Old Straight Rye 2024 Release
We blend and proof our whiskeys in annual vintages, a unique approach that allows us to embrace the nuances of each year’s barrels, which are naturally shaped by the barrel oak, mash bill. Climate, and storage environment. Rather than replicating flavor profiles – the traditional method — we craft the best, not the same, whiskey every year.
Vertical Series Rye Whiskey
In this unprecedented exploration of the impact of age on whiskey, we follow a group of 450 rye barrels as they age from 4 to 12 years. Each vintage represents another year of maturity and is blended and proofed to showcase the best of the rye at that age.
Pinhook is an old Kentucky term for buying foals and nurturing them into champions. To honor the parallels between whiskey-making and pinhooking, each label features a promising thoroughbred at the start of its racing career.
