Our Special Edition Whiskeys

We have a select group of specialty finished whiskeys. They all begin with our award-winning American Rested Whiskey and finished in unique styles. Once they’re gone, you’ll have to wait for the next batch.

More About Rye & Rested
Rye History

In the late 1700s and early 1800s rye was the grain that most American whiskey was made from. As the country expanded westward, corn began to replace rye and by the end of Prohibition, rye had largely disappeared.

Flavor Profile

The spicy, sometimes described as ‘peppery’ notes of rye whiskey often show best when blended with the natural sweetness of whiskey made from corn. Distinctive vanillin and caramel notes add complexity and character.

Cask Series Whiskeys

Our 200ml Sherry WhiskeyOne of the most exciting aspects of craft distilling is the freedom to innovate. Pinckney Bend Cask Series Whiskies begin with our internationally acclaimed Rested American Whiskey.

After a year in new and second use 15 gallon Missouri White Oak barrels, these whiskies are then finished for up to a year in a variety of wine and ale casks. The results are nothing short of amazing. These expressions are made in small quantities, bottled in 200mL bottles and are generally available only at the distillery.

Port Cask finish

After a year in new oak, this whiskey is then finished in a port barrel from Stone Hill Winery in Hermann MO. Our American whiskey is made from corn, and finished in a traditional Scottish style.

Sherry Cask Finish

AWARD WINNER! After a year in new oak, this whiskey is then finished in an oloroso sherry cask. Our American whiskey is made from corn, and finished in a traditional Scottish style.

Stout Cask Finish

We take used Stout barrels from breweries such as Second Shift Brewery and Perennial to finish our year old whiskey. What results is a rich, full-flavored, stouted whiskey.

Zinfandel Finished Whiskey

After a year in new oak, this whiskey is then finished in a French oak zinfandel barrel from Peter Franus, Brandlin Vineyard on Mount Veeder, Napa Valley.

Single Barrel Distiller's Reserve

In collecting barrel samples, we occasionally find one that is dramatically different from its peers. Our distiller calls these “Honey Barrels” and we set them aside for a special bottling.

Rye & Rested

Rye & Rested Whiskey is a blend of 55% rye and 45% Pinckney Bend’s award winning Rested American Whiskey. The rye is aged in new, standard size whiskey barrels and the Rested is aged for one year in new 15 gallon barrels. The result is a unique flavor profile that accentuates the best aspects of each spirit.

Our Special Edition Whiskeys Boxed Set
