The Spirit
Pinhooking is a term used to describe the practice of buying young, thoroughbred horses, overseeing their initial development, and then re-selling them as race-ready champions-in-training. The Pinhook brand pays tribute to this practice and the parallels between investing in a horses potential and that of a young whiskey. Optimism, patience, and vision are paramount when training a young horse for future victory and aging whiskey until its ready to blossom in-glass.

Every year, Pinhook releases a new batch each of bourbon & rye; the whiskey in any given release intended to be the best expression of Pinhooks barrels at that particular moment in time. Blends and proofs change batch to batch to best highlight that releases unique attributes and can be thought of, quite appropriately, as a whiskey vintage.

The newly restored Castle & Key Distillery, in Frankfort, KY, plays home to Pinhooks operations. Built in the late 1800s, Castle & Key was the original residence for Old Colonel Taylor. Beginning in Spring of 2020, Pinhooks proprietary mash billcrafted and distilled by Castle & Keywill make its way to bottle and become available for sale.

Pinhook

View all from Pinhook
PinhookEvery fall Pinhook releases a new bourbon and rye, each of which is connected to a promising young thoroughbred horse. The whiskey in each release is the best expression of our barrels at that moment in time, and we blend and proof each release to be as unique as the horse on the label. The result is an annual vintage of Pinhook Bourbon and Pinhook Rye that become instant collectibles. And while it is impossible to know if the horse on the bottle will go all the way to the Kentucky Derby, there is no gamble on the quality of what's inside.


Pinhooking is an old Kentucky term for purchasing young thoroughbreds, holding them until they mature, and selling them when they are ready to run. Successful pinhooks – much like whiskey -- are made on instinct, experience, an appreciation of quality, and a little luck. We handcraft our bourbon and rye to reflect the richness of the Kentucky soil and the character of its beautiful horse country, where we run our operations out of the newly restored Castle & Key distillery in Millville, KY
