Old Glory sits on the Tennessee/Kentucky state line… and is absolutely worth visiting and drinking. 

I really enjoy their bottled in bond, but this particular single barrel takes it to the next level.  It was a fun experience to compare notes from the BIB to the SIB at cask strength… to see what changed.


I truly think Old Glory is primed to be one of the next big names in craft distilling.  If you don’t live in their region, you might not yet know their name.  This is your notice.  Know their name.
