Ferndale, MI — Valentine Distilling Co., a leader in craft spirits, is excited to announce the launch of its Mayor Pingree Single Barrel Bourbon and Mayor Pingree Single Barrel Rye. Each of these 5-year expressions released Sept. 10. This is the latest line extension from Valentine Distilling Co.’s award-winning line of Mayor Pingree spirits.
These barrel strength, non-chill, filtered whiskeys are the youngest single-barrel expressions Valentine has released to date. The current release of these barrels was distilled on the famed column stills of MGP Ingredients in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and have been aged and bottled in Valentine Distilling Co.’s eco-friendly, Ferndale, Michigan distillery.
A limited amount of these cask strength barrels have been hand-picked by select Michigan retailers with additional markets launching later this year. The 5-year single barrel bottles have a suggested retail price of $65.99 which is a tremendous value given their quality.
“We’ve had such a strong demand for Mayor Pingree bourbon and rye that it’s great to bring more of them to market,” said Rifino Valentine, Founder of Valentine Distilling Co. “It is nice to see the enthusiasm not only with these casks, but with our entire line of whiskey. I don’t think these will stay on the shelves very long.”
In addition to these new releases, the Mayor Pingree line includes the Red Label Bourbon, Orange Label Rye, Limited Edition Blend Black Label Bourbon, as well as the rare, Single Barrel Blue Label Bourbon. These offerings can be found in fine restaurants and retailers throughout Valentine’s distribution footprint.
