BUILDING A BATCH: COURAGE & CONVICTION

From the distillate data, cask data, to maturation, and to bottling, learn about the process of what it takes to create a batch of Courage & Conviction.

NO COLOR ADDED

We don't add food coloring to any of our products. The color of Courage & Conviction is derived from the combination of casks it was matured in.

NON-CHILL FILTERED

We don't chill filter any of our products. We believe chill filtering our whiskies would remove important flavors and complexities.

NO ADDITIVES

We don't use additives to change the taste profile of our products. Our whisky's flavor comes from the distillation and maturation process.
