After prohibition was repealed with the 21st Amendment, there were only a few whiskey distillers in America who re-started their operations. The Shapria brothers spotted an opportunity and bought a plot of land in Kentucky, bourbon’s heartland. The business grew to have the largest roster of whisky brands in America. This cask comes from one of their sprawling warehouse and we think it’s an example just how great American whiskey can be.
