INFO: Kentucky-based non-distilling producer, Pinhook, appeared on the crowded American whiskey stage back in 2014; since that time they’ve released annual, limited bottlings of sourced bourbon and rye reportedly from MGP. The distillery’s name comes from a term that describes the practice of purchasing yearling horses and selling them when they’re race-ready.
