Beginning in September, Old Dominick will release a series of Small Batch Bourbons from their estate-produced distillate. Master Distiller Alex Castle says of the release, “As a native Kentuckian, I couldn’t resist producing a true bourbon in Tennessee, but I knew it had to be unique. That’s where the high-rye mash bill came in. Instead of deciding on one singular bottle proof for an initial release, I thought it would be more fun to experiment with blending four unique batches at four unique proofs. With proofs ranging from as low as 90 to as high as 117, consumers can  experience every aspect and profile that this singular mash bill can provide.”
