You can also send someone to pick it up for you as long as you notify us. There’s a legal limit of 1,500ml per 30 days for picking up bottles from the distillery. That’s the amount of 2 full sized whiskey bottles.*

UPDATE – Unfortunately, this one sold out really fast. Just FYI, we’re holding back about 4 cases so that we can sell it at the distillery and offer it for tastings or by-the-glass until it’s all gone.

The good news? We’re already working with Acopon Brewing to repeat this entire exercise. So a re-release of Chapter 10 – Stout Cask should be happening again soon!

Eleanor and Valentine – Chapter 10

They called him “The Shadow” because he walked in darkness both to and from work. Many had never heard him speak. His cabin was an alchemist’s laboratory, billowing smoke at odd hours and littered with old stills, vials, and gauges.

His distillery produced a bourbon renown throughout Kentucky, but insiders went to his back door for the good stuff.

Ten years after she died the master distiller quit his job, packed up his equipment, and left town without a word. Valentine was going home.
