    Trey Herring's Carolina Bourbon

    Just picked up a bottle of this for ~ $20. Not bad for a "less than four years" bourbon. The website tells nothing. The bottle says distilled and bottled in North Charleston, SC. Actually taste a lot like Peach Street Bourbon but at less than a third the cost. DOes anyone know anything about it?

    Re: Trey Herring's Carolina Bourbon

    According to the state, the price is $28.95. The label is unambiguous about it being distilled by them in S.C., but it's hard to imagine how this guy has managed to fly under the radar for several years. Everything you can find on the web is very new and very vague.

    The producer's name is Kenneth Herring III.

    I also learned, from an Evan Williams fishing site, that the blueback herring is prevalent in Lake Murray, which is near Columbia. The lake's coveted bass eat the herring, so herring spawning grounds are a good place to fish for bass.

    I'm curious about this (the whiskey, not the fish), especially since you say it's not bad.

    I'm assuming that comes from Terressentia Corp. Probably a private label for someone named Trey Herring. The notorious Michael J. Flynn combustible swill of Troyce's pyrotechnic shows is from them, too. I think they are one of those promoters of accelerating the aging process, or some nonsense like that. The MJF was wretched.

    Makes sense. It's the next suburb north.

    The COLA shows it to indeed be a Terresentia product: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...12291001000533

    I'm not aware that Teressentia does any distilling though.

    IIRC, they're another "speed aging" outfit.

    Yup. They use "ultrasonic energy-driven oxidation." http://www.terressentia.com/

    This is very interesting. Discovered that Trey Herring's Craft Spirits, LLC is actually based in Goldsboro, NC. Gonna try some more tonight.

    How timely... there is a recent article on Terressentia. The headline is funny--"Quicker to Liquor"

    Shoot! forget private barrel, how about the forum get its own private label! StraightBourbon Bourbon. has a nice ring to it even if it's redundant.

    And has the added benefit of being and end-run around the regulations that forbid labeling something aged under two years as "Straight Bourbon."
