Buck Dancer Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Mitchell Parr, Head Distiller states, “Bourbon is interesting when it tells a story. Our story unfolds through local partnerships, and through ingredients and elements indigenous to our region. Buck Dancer embodies the story of family farmed heirloom corn, regionally harvested white oak, and an open-air aging process which captures the taste of all four-seasons.”
Buck Dancer Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a “Whiskey in Harmony” with our native land. It is distilled from an heirloom variety of red corn grown in partnership with family farmers. These famers share our passion for open-pollinated, no-till, and organic farming practices. We selected wine grade barrel staves produced by Staggemeyer Stave Company located in Caledonia, MN. The American White Oak trees used in the construction of the barrel staves are regionally grown and harvested. The oak is naturally cured outdoors for 24 to 36 months creating a natural microflora that interacts with the bourbon as it ages producing depth and complexity in the flavor profile. This organic small batch bourbon is aged four-years in an open-air rickhouse. Deep flavor profiles are developed as the oak barrels absorbs and constrict the bourbon in tandem with the climate and the seasonality of our region. Buck Dancer is barreled at cask strength at approximately 120 proof.
The brand name Buck Dancer and fiddle illustration depicted on the label are drawn from old world Appalachia where string bands and moonshiners were commonplace. It is an homage to some of the first distillers in this country and tips our collective hat to great music and spirits that have been central to cultural development in this country.
