Starlight Distillery is a family-owned distillery in Starlight, IN. The distillery started out as a family farm in 1940. It's had multiple evolutions over the years. In 1978, the Huber's started their winery. Then in 2000 the Huber's took the next step and received approval to open the distillery. Starlight is farm-focused and produces many single-origin products. I think they're the only distillery I know that is a working farm, orchard, market, tourist destination, winery, banquet hall, and distillery!
Starlight Distillery Carl T. Port Finished Bourbon
After 4 years of aging in new, charred American Oak, this bourbon is finished in an estate-grown Knobstone port barrel for over 8 months. This finish provides notes of toffee and raisin that complement the characteristic flavors of our flagship bourbon.
Starlight Distillery Carl T. Bottled-In-Bond Bourbon
Starlight Distillery’s small-batch bottled-in-bond bourbon is a unique, limited-release product. Beginning with sweet mash and distilled in our copper pot stills, this straight bourbon whiskey is aged for a minimum of 4 years in Huber’s Old Rickhouse (on the grounds of the 7th generation Huber estate, established in 1843). We then bottle at 100 proof under the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897.
Starlight Distillery Carl T. Bourbon
6th Generation partners, Greg & Ted Huber wanted to name their bourbon after their grandpa, Carl Theodore or Carl T, who they were told loved his share of Bourbon.

Balanced lending itself to an extraordinary craft cocktail.
