Will You Go Down The Rabbit Hole?

by Jonathan Gaby on July 19, 2017

Capital Cellars is proud to announce that instead of our normal Thursday evening wine tasting, we are hosting Rabbit Hole Distillery for a special tasting of their bourbons.

Bourbon Tasting - Rabbit Hole Bourbon

About Rabbit Hole Bourbon

From their website:

“Most good stories begin in a similar way, “there was this girl…”. Heather, Kaveh Zamanian’s now wife, introduced Kaveh to bourbon and he switched from Scotch to bourbon. They have been working on the Rabbit Hole distillery for over five years now, and are just now getting their bourbon to market.”

Located in the heart of NULU neighborhood of Louisville, Rabbit Hole distillery is built on Kentucky’s rich distilling heritage with a clear view of the future. Our spirits start with the finest grains, local cooperage, state of the art facilities and veteran master distiller of over 35 years and modern tastemakers. In the end our goal is to make singular, exceptional spirits that are true and pleasing. Follow the Hare™ and experience a new expression of Bourbon, Rye and other innovative American spirits.

The Bourbons

Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

“Bourbon is an act of faith. The barrel builds a strong foundation of vanilla and wood. Atop that, we bet on an unorthodox, four-grain mash promising spice and honey and a fresh apple breeze. When we first poked the thief into the darkness of the barrel, our faith was rewarded: a whiskey of remarkable maturity and self-possession, with spice on the front and custard in the finish.”
Mash Bill
  • 70% Corn
  • 10% Malted Wheat
  • 10% Honey Malted Barley
  • 10% Malted Barley

Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

“There is a boldness to our 95% Rye Whiskey. Kentucky distilled and aged, with a brown sugar nose and spice that jumps on the tongue. Great with a splash of water, but breathtaking in classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned.”
Mash Bill
  • 95% Rye
  • 5% Malted Barley
Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in PX Sherry Casks
“We take Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a wheat mash bill, aged in alligator char. We transfer it to casks that have been used to perfect sweet, dark Pedro Ximénez sherry. The resulting whiskey is refined, balanced with a long cascading finish.”
Mash Bill
  • 68% Corn
  • 18% Wheat
  • 14% Malted Barley
Come meet John Coffee who is with Rabbit Hole Distilling for a unique bourbon tasting event. We’ll begin at 4pm on Thursday July 20, 2017 and end when we’re done!
