Pinhook Bourbon Whiskey
Every year, Pinhook releases new bourbons and ryes that showcase the best attributes of their barrels. After meticulous barrel selection and blending, they find the perfect proof for each expression, giving the vintage a character as unique as the thoroughbred on the label. We are featuring two of their products.
A bright nose of tropical fruit, butterscotch and cedar leads to a rich and vibrant palate of dried fig, cacao, roasted peanut and clove. Aged four years.
This High Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon has a bright nose of tangerine, preserved lemon, and brioche, which lead to a deep and lush palate of dried papaya, toffee, cocoa, and almonds. Aged three years.
In Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Greenhook Ginsmiths produces their gins in a custom-made 300-liter Copper Pot Still specifically engineered to work under a vacuum, which removes air pressure from the still.

The final product is a lively and aromatic spirit that perfectly balances juniper with equal notes of herbal, floral and citrus.

appears in the palate with distinct barley, grass and toffee notes that meld into a tingly, spicy
