Spring Mill Bourbon
Spring Mill Bourbon is handcrafted with corn, rye, and a bit of malted barley. It is then aged in new charred oak barrels. Then a portion of the bourbon is finished in a second set of new charred oak barrels to give this twice barreled bourbon additional character and flavor.
Spring Mill Bourbon de-barreling.
Produced and bottled by Heartland Distillers, Spring Mill Bourbon (Series 017) is twice barreled in new charred American oak for additional character and flavor. Bottled and dangerously drinkable at 90 proof, this straight bourbon is pleasantly sweet with notes of spicy rye, vanilla custard, brown sugar, sweet tea, and sweet corn. Notes of floral spices and a touch of citrus and wood shavings accompany the nose. Perfect neat, on the rocks, or accompanying your favorite bourbon inspired cocktail.
This series was our original Spring Mill produced in 2014. It went out of production for three years do to a shortage of new oak barrels. When we finally started producing it again in we changed the series to 17.
First distilled in our founding year, this is limited edition special bourbon.
Our 8-year-old Spring Mill Bourbon Green Label is a tour de force that brings out notes of oak, caramel, and orange peel with subtle notes of cherry on the nose. The pallet brings out even more caramel, spice, oak, and orange with hints of licorice and a slight nuttiness. The finish is smoky with notes of oak that is well balanced with a spicyness and herbal character.
Spring Mill 8-year-old is rich, complex and warm that is a spice driven bourbon with a bold yet elegant flavor. It is well balanced, warm and inviting. A touch of water will moderate the spice and bring out the orange peel and herbal character.
This amazing bourbon was distilled and laid down to age shortly after we started Heartland Distillers 10 years ago and comes from the very first barrels produced. These barrels were hand selected for additional aging. Aged 9 years in new charred American oak, it is wonderfully complex and rich, with notes of caramel, spice, and vanilla. Dark and full of flavor, it is intense and smooth.
