OUR WHISKEY

Release 7, Batch 7

River Kelvin Rye

For our first ever Rye, we selected the best barrels of 7 year old Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey we could find and blended them. The resulting whiskey is spicy and yet fruit-forward for a refreshing sip. Presented without barrel finishing, this whiskey is a great sip on its own, and will be bottled with at least two additional barrel finishes over the next year for a before-and-after presentation.

OUR WHISKEY

Release 8, Batch 8

TENNESSEE FOUNDATION

In late 2019 and early 2020, Four Gate Whiskey Company released two unfinished Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey batches, dubbed “Foundation.” Due to the extremely limited amount of whiskey available, only a handful of those bottles made it to our second major market in Tennessee – or outside of Kentucky at all. To make up for that, the company is releasing a micro-batch of Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey available in ALL of Four Gate’s markets. The batch is called “Tennessee Foundation.”

We selected and blended five barrels of 10-year-old Tennessee Straight Bourbon with a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley.
