    Re: mellow corn expanding is distribution area?

    I got a fifth of this from the Party Source (thanks, free shipping) and the label gave me a chuckle:

    "Distilled by Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. DSP-KY-354, Louisville, Kentucky

    Bottled by Medley Company, Bardstown, KY. DSP-KY-31."

    and, in small print:

    "Not connected with any other distillery using the name Medley."

    I understand the wheres and whys, but like I said, it's amusing that they refer the DSP that's not Heaven Hill as Heaven Hill, and the DSP that is(was) Heaven Hill, as Medley.

    Me too! This stuff is great. Mellow is definitely the proper adjective.

    The DSP applies to more than the distillery. DSP-31 still exists in Bardstown to cover Heaven Hill's maturation, rectification, and bottling facility.

    I was more referring to the fact that it was distilled at B/F.

    When a company or location is referred to as a "Rectifier," what exactly does that involve?
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    A rectifier is someone that buys whiskey from someone else and bottles it under their own name.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Re: mellow corn expanding is distribution area?

    Traditionally, rectifiers rectified or "fixed" a whiskey's flaws by redistilling or filtering it. Today the term covers blending and any kind of compounding, such as the making of liqueurs. A rectifier is typically distinguished from a mere bottler for doing something to the spirit prior to bottling it.

    Re: mellow corn expanding is distribution area?

    Interesting. I had always assumed it had something to do with re-distilling, but wasn't sure. I suppose with the modern day definition of the word, there are several "micro distillers" that would better be described as rectifiers.

    It's funny that HH is referred to as the last American distillery still making Straight Corn Whiskey, when in fact it's B-F that makes the damn thing.

    And after all this time, could not the Bernheim plant could be making this??

    Perhaps it will go the same route as Ritt, Soon to be bernheim distillate. but the 354 stuff sure is tasty.
