About The Pinhook Vertical Series
Pinhook’s Vertical Series follows a collection of 1,350 bourbon and rye barrels, sourced from MGP in Indiana, as they age from four to 12 years. Each year. Pinhook selects a group of barrels from the bunch and blends them. The series began with a 4-year-old release in 2019 and increases by one year in age each year.
Pinhook names its whiskeys for different thoroughbreds in its stables. The Vertical Series Bourbon bottles all feature Bourbon War, who has won races at Belmont Park, Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park, Keeneland, Pimlico Race Course and Saratoga.
Pinhook ages and blends the Vertical Series casks at Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky.
Bourbon: an American tradition honed over centuries to deliver reliably delicious results. But what if instead of aiming to replicate the same exact product year after year, we embraced each barrel’s natural variations to craft a unique whiskey every time, taking our inspiration from how winemakers create annual vintages?
That’s the question we set out to answer with our novel approach to whiskey-making. Every year, a new selection of barrels goes through multiple rounds of thoughtful blending and proofing to achieve the best possible whiskey, a balanced expression that does the American whiskey tradition proud while nudging it in new directions. Each vintage may vary slightly in proof and tasting notes, but a Pinhook pour is consistently excellent.
