Jimmy Red corn is a distinctive red corn that was rescued from near extinction by a man named Ted Chewning. Named for James Island just over the bridge from Charleston and heralded by Chef Sean Brock, Jimmy Red was a legendary moonshiner's corn that had dwindled down to a mere 2 cobs following the death of the last man known to grow it. “Jimmy Red corn is the most remarkable corn we've ever worked with. Nutty, sweet, and mineralic with an extremely high oil content, the fermented mash produces a 3" thick oil cap. We distill on the grain, so all of that oil is blended back into the mash and provides an unusually creamy mouthfeel in the distillate. The Jimmy Red whiskey is aged for a minimum of 2 years, creating a straight bourbon unlike any other we've ever experienced.” Pick up your bottle today!
