Arkansas' First Native Bourbon Whiskey Now Available!

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock Town Distillery, Arkansas' first legal distillery since prohibition, today announced the debut of its first whiskey, "Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey."

"Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey" was pot distilled from a mash of Arkansas Corn and Arkansas Wheat.  Aged in 5 and 10 gallon new charred oak barrels at the distillery in Little Rock, this is the first legal bourbon whiskey ever commercially produced in the great state of Arkansas.  It's called a "Young" bourbon whiskey because that's exactly what it is.  It was aged between 3 and 6 months using accelerated maturation techniques that includes small barrels and temperature cycling.

"Bourbon has a great southern tradition," said distillery owner and head distiller Phil Brandon, "and we wanted to make our bourbon from native Arkansas grains and age the whiskey in small barrels coopered in Arkansas.  It's the first Arkansas Bourbon."

Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey is handmade in very small batches and only about 114 cases were bottled of this first release, some of which will go to Illinois and Tennessee, as well as liquor stores and restaurants throughout Arkansas.  

Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at 92 proof (46% ABV), with a suggested retail of $24.99/375ml.

Rock Town Distillery is distributed by Glazers of Arkansas, Maxwell Street Trading in Illinois, and United Liquors Corp in Memphis.
