Thousands of years ago, glaciers carved the magnificent, rolling landscape in southern Indiana. Brown County, Indiana’s first pioneers settled among those hills and hollows, bringing with them a legacy of whiskey making - a mix of Old World tradition and early American ingenuity.
Henry A. Sipes, Brown County’s first known distiller, was among those pioneers. His spirits helped supply liquor establishments that cropped up in the country seat. In those establishments that cropped up in the county seat. In those establishments, Sipes and his fellow pioneers would sip on spirits and celebrate good lives hard-won in the wilds. Our curated, four-year-old Sipes’ Straight Bourbon Whiskey is award-winning and double oaked in a smoky flavor and savory complexity - an homage to the spirits crafted by Sipes.
Raise a glass of Sipes’ and give a nod to the Brown Countians of yesteryear and their pioneering spirit.
