I live in the greater St. Louis area, which is down home DN1843 country. Every liquor and grocery store you see has it for sale. The current juice is just OK, but there was a decided drop in quality about 6-8 years ago. Before that it really was one of the best values in bourbon, and I'm not particularly a wheater guy.
Hey Mamba, Are you (or any other St. Louis folk) able to dig further and find out if the brand went directly from Peter Hauptmann & Company to David Sherman? A little internet sleuthing myself and came up with this dilapidated billboard for when it was still owned by Hauptmann. Also the grave for Peter Hauptmann too who unfortunately hasn't been around since 1904. Isn't the internet amazing .
