For the series’ second release, Pinhook has partnered with Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery and 2014 James Beard Award winner, to produce an artfully structured high-proof, high-rye bourbon.
This special collaboration will fund 20 scholarships in brewing and distilling to people of color through the Michael J. Jackson Foundation, of which Oliver is chair. Blended and proofed from 20 pinhooked barrels out of Still Austin. Aged for 4 years in the Texas heat, which speeds aging and results in a whiskey with a maturity that far exceeds its time in the barrel.
In Pinhook’s Collaboration Series, we partner with luminaries working in other sensory-rich fields to produce vintages that epitomize the curiosity-based approach Pinhook was founded on: sourcing great barrels of whiskey and meticulously crafting the blend and proof to bring out their finest characteristics. By exploring the possibilities of whiskey from varied perspectives, the Series’ collaborators invariably hit on something new and exciting.
