Spirits of French Lick Distillery located in West Baden Springs, Indiana, has announced its official partnership with Evergreen Beverage Canada. Barrel #473 of our acclaimed Lee W. Sinclair and Barrel #428 of The Morning Glory kasha bourbon were hand selected for Canada and will be available at select retail locations in Alberta, Canada beginning July 2022.
Spirits of French Lick focuses on the four pillars of distilling: bourbon, brandy, botanical spirits, and American whiskey and follows one rule, “Respect the Grain.” This gives the distillery a unique place in the industry, not just in terms of the story but also in the methodologies of double pot still distillation, retention, and concentration of flavors. In addition, the distillery relies on both time-tested practices and new innovations in their distilling program. Through these processes, French Lick crafts spirits with a defined character, equally driven by grain, barrel, yeast, and experience.
“We thoroughly enjoy working with Evergreen Beverage Canada and are grateful to Trace, Mike, and Gene for their trust in our brand as well as the incredible opportunity to connect with Canadian bourbon enthusiasts over a dram of Hoosier whiskey,” said Nicholas and Laurelin Doty, Owners of Spirits of French Lick.
“To say I’m excited to see my whiskies in the hands of our neighbors in the north is an understatement.” – Alan Bishop, Head Distiller/Alchemist Spirits of French Lick.
