The Crop 18 Grouping by Pinhook is composed of a rye whiskey named Rye Humor and Bourbon Country Bourbon. Bourbon Country comes in three variations including a standard Straight Bourbon, Single Barrel, and Cask Strength. Bourbon Country Cask Strength is the first cask strength bourbon bottled under the Pinhook name. The bourbon itself was distilled at MGP in Indiana. Pinhook states that the bourbon has an average age of three years and eight months and was aged, blended, and proofed by Sean Josephs at Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, KY. Through a partnership with Bourbon Lane Stable LLC, each lot of Pinhook whiskey showcases an individual thoroughbred. For the first cask strength release, Bourbon Country was chosen. Foaled April 17, 2014, Bourbon Country was bred at Alamar Farm, LLC and is the son of Harlan's Holiday and Uninhibited Song. In addition to the horse, each release of Pinhook is distinguished by a different color wax, with Bourbon Country Cask Strength sporting purple wax for the first time in the brand’s history.
