Born in Kentucky and finished in Sonoma County, Hooker's House Bourbon pays tribute to Joseph "Fighting Joe" Hooker, an infamous Union General during the American Civil War. Although Hooker's decisions on the battlefield were often questioned, his love of whiskey and women were not.

Made from a mashbill of 56% corn and 46% rye, Hooker's House Bourbon is aged for seven years in new, charred American oak barrels in Kentucky. After aging, Fred Groth, master distiller at Prohibition Spirits, transfers the bourbon at cask strength into used French pinot noir barrels sourced from the Schug Winery in Sonoma Valley. The pinot noir barrels are hand-selected by Michael Cox, the head winemaker at Schug Winery, based on the flavor profile of the previous year's vintage. This double-barreling, or finishing process, imparts subtle flavors of dried apricot and cherries to the bourbon, and earned Hooker's House Bourbon the only Platinum Medal awarded at the 2012 SIP Competition.

After the bourbon is finished in the pinot noir barrels, it is brought to proof with natural spring water from the Carneros wine appellation's volcano formation in Sonoma. Groth then fills and labels each bottle by hand.

The bold and daring character of Hooker's House Bourbon is matched only by General Hooker's indulgent and hedonistic lifestyle. During the war, Hooker kept the morale of his troops high by hosting a group of progressively-minded woman at his army headquarters. The women were affectionately referred to as the Hooker's Brigade, and eventually, just Hookers.

The spirit and legend of the General live on in Hooker's House Bourbon and Cohabitation Bourbon. Indulge yourself and pick up a bottle today!

A scent of toffee and plum, with hints of rye and cherry. The wine barrels lend fruits to the palate, with the high rye content present throughout. Exceptionally smooth and soft.
