Union Horse Reserve Bourbon
Dark Horse Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of 80% corn and 20% rye, both of which are sourced from local farms in the American Midwest. Once the grains have been transported to the distillery, they are milled and mashed before being fermented with a proprietary strain of yeast that was formulated specifically for Dark Horse Bourbon. By using sour mash to catalyze the fermentation process (sour mash refers to the art of using a small amount of spent mash from an older batch of whiskey in order to catalyze fermentation in a new batch of whiskey), Dark Horse is able to maintain consistency with each bottling. Once the mash has been fermented for five to six days, it is distilled through a custom-made Vendome copper-pot still.
