Sometimes the right ingredient makes all the difference. In a world seemingly always looking for the next culinary trend, our bourbon looks to an ingredient from the past, namely Hickory King Corn. Developed in the 1880s in the hollows of Virginia, the large white kernels of Hickory King quickly became highly prized for grits and hominy and shortly thereafter for its highest calling: whiskey. District Made Bourbon is the first bourbon made from grain to glass in DC since Prohibition, and we strive to produce a bourbon worthy of that distinction. Ours is a four-grain bourbon that deftly balances the sweetness typical of bourbon with a complexity derived from diverse secondary grains and malts.
A drier flavor profile than many bourbons, carrying a gentle, buttery sugar quality without the cloyingly sweet characteristics that have come to define bourbon. Ours carries a bold kick of spice that’s sure to stand out in your favorite cocktail.
