J. Henry & Sons Bourbon

7794 Patton Rd, Dane, WI 53529
The Henry family has been growing superior corn, wheat and rye in Dane, Wisconsin, over 65 years. In 2008, they revived an heirloom, red corn – developed at the University of Wisconsin in the 1930’s – and with that corn and other inputs raised on their farm, began making bourbon. J. Henry & Sons is made in small batches, slow-aged a minimum of five years, in large barrels in a rustic barn on the Henry farmstead. The result is pure Wisconsin craft bourbon, with aromas of sweet corn, caramel pudding, toffee, creamy vanilla, dark cocoa, cinnamon, coconut shavings and Jamaican allspice, to be sipped and savored. Their first release, in April 2015, won a gold medal at the American Distillers Institute in Louisville, KY.
