New Southern Revival Jimmy Red Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Jimmy Red was a legendary moonshiner's corn that had dwindled down to a mere 2 cobs following the death of the last man known to grow it.  In 2015, Jimmy Red corn was accepted as a new addition to the Slow Food Ark of Taste, an international catalog of endangered heritage foods.

In early 2014 we grew and harvested enough corn to distill 2 batches of the most unique bourbon we have ever tasted. 

Jimmy Red corn is the most remarkable corn we've ever worked with. Nutty, sweet, and mineralic with an extremely high oil content, the fermented mash produces a 3" thick oil cap. We distill on the grain, so all of that oil is blended back into the mash and provides an unusually creamy mouthfeel in the distillate. The Jimmy Red whiskey is aged for a minimum of 2 years, creating a straight bourbon unlike any other we've ever experienced.
