Event description
Old 55 Distillery owner/distiller Jason Fruits talks to us about one of the most unique whiskeys in the world and leads us on a tasting!

About this Event

We've got an amazing event here... Jason Fruits, owner of Old 55 Distillery in Newtown, Indiana, is going to lead us on a tasting of his 100% Sweet Corn Bourbon. This whiskey is so unique for several reasons... first, it's the only bourbon in the world made with 100% Sweet Corn, the heirloom varietal of corn, not the commodity yellow dent #2 corn that is used in most of the world's bourbon. Second is the process. Jason, whose family owns a grain company, has access to resources others don't when it comes to grain so he set out to make the most unique whiskey in the world, something he knew others couldn't copy so he takes his sweet corn and cuts it well within the "hearts cut" meaning he only takes the best of the best when it comes to the whiskey.

During a recent visit to Old 55 by event cohost Steve Akley of the ABV Network, Jason showed him the yield on a batch of his Sweet Corn Whiskey. While a normal run would get you about 60 gallons, this "hearts of the hearts cut" meant he only got 13 gallons. If the accounts were leading the design of this whiskey, it makes no sense. It's not made by accounts, though, it's made by a person seeking to make the best and most unique whiskey in the world and we'll talk to Jason himself about this product and he will personally lead us on a tasting of both the regular 80 proof that he sells in stores via distribution channels ($129 retail) and his barrel strength (117.8 proof for this barrel/bottle) he just started selling as a distillery gift shop only offering ($200 retail).

Come taste for yourself why Old 55's Sweet Corn Bourbon is one of the most unique whiskeys in the world!

A few notes about this event:1. You must be 21 years of age or older and a resident of the United States to participate.

2. Zoom sign-on information will go out the day of the event.

3. Neither Steve Akley or the ABV Network is affiliated with any of the brands featured on our Virtual Bourbon events.

4. Steve Akley will reach out to you for your address if he doesn't have it on file. Important: If you have moved, please notify Steve so we can update our records. We do not get address or contact info from Eventbrite when you sign-up, so our assumption is you are still living at the same place as the last event you signed-up for.
