    Re: Indiana might soon blaze its own bourbon trail

    I expect the two operations could exist side by side, presumably staffed by different employees.

    Re: Indiana might soon blaze its own bourbon trail

    For those interested, the Summer 2012 Whisky Advocate has a very good article on craft brewers transitioning to microdistillers. The article highlights Brett VanderKamp of New Holland Brewing/Distilling, Bruce Joseph of Anchor Brewing/Distilling, Rogue Brewing/Distilling, and Ranger Brewing/Distilling. All make great beers and the distilled products they are putting out are equally as good. As whiskey starts as beer many of them see this as a natural transition. I also suspect that, for many of them, it is a much bigger challenge for their brewing/distilling skills to get into distilling. As one microbrewer turned microdistiller described to me microbrewing is the jv and distilling is the varsity. I suspect the Three Floyds folks will make very good distilled products and I know Omar's group at Sun King will, but realistically, with the current laws in Indiana, they are both probably at least 1 if not 2 years away from getting their DSPs to produce let alone get product on the market. But, I can't wait for that to happen.

    Really? I thought Heartland's Bourbon was their own.....around 3-4 years old.

    Nope it's MGPI. I heard to right from one of their PR guys. They do rebarrel it for a period of time. Adds a nice extra layer of depth.

    The Southern Indiana wine trail does very well. At least Huber's has added a still and makes a very good apple brandy. I think this is a more natural extension in Indiana for distilled product that the brewers, which of course means brandy would be the emphasis instead of whiskey.
