Bloomington, Indiana distiller Cardinal Spirits released three bourbons in August.
- Birdhouse Bourbon is the new house bourbon exclusively sold in the Bloomington tasting room. Birdhouse Bourbon will be available at all times and will be available neat and in cocktails. In the past, Cardinal Spirits only had bourbon cocktails on the menu when they released a small batch. Now, those cocktails will be available throughout the year.
- Four Grain Bourbon. There are bottles from two barrels of this spirit, including corn, barley, wheat and rye.
- Hoosier Gold Bourbon won’t be available at the Bloomington distillery. It’s a blended bourbon using small-batch whiskeys aged for three to seven years and will be sold at retailers, restaurants and bars in Bloomington and in, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
