Backstory: This is bourbon has an interesting production story. Old Dominick started out with an MGP made bourbon just like many other distillers. That's what you'll find in the bottle today. However, what they did at MGP was actually a little different. They used their own mash bill, brought their own yeast strain and trucked in Memphis water all the way to Lawrenceburg, IN. Luckily, they did this several years ago because MGP no longer allows contract distilling! But, there's plenty of bourbon aging and ready to go in Memphis. Old Dominick hired former Wild Turkey distillery supervisor, Alex Castle, to take on the role as Master Distiller. They've been pumping out high rye bourbon since 2016.
The name pays homage to where the Old Dominick story began in 1866, a bustling the warehouse where D. Canale first sold his bourbon in downtown Memphis, Tennessee, with each sip invoking a feeling of rediscovery.
