Why Buy: Orphan Barrel's uncompromising focus on craft has made it a collector’s favorite. The latest expression is Indigo’s Hour, an 18-year-old Straight Bourbon with the complexity, richness, and intricacy that separates it from the herd of everyday-drinking bourbons

The Story: Tullahoma, Tennessee, is Orphan Barrel's base of operations, an hour-and-a-half south of Nashville, three hours west of Knoxville. It's a tiny hamlet, with small-town charms. But, fortunately for all of us, this is not a team made up of homebodies. They're restless and relentless seekers, bottling rare and exquisite whiskeys. This one? It’s aged for 18 years in charred oak barrels at the cathedral of American whiskey, Stitzel Weller. 

Our Tasting Notes: The nose awakens your senses for richness and complexity – aromas of toasted oak, creamy vanilla, baking spices, and red fruit rise from the glass – and that promise is more than delivered upon; on the palate, the bourbon transforms into a soft, paved field of caramel, honey, and vanilla. A touch of oak announces the finish, which unfurls with velvety smoothness. A triumph of time, patience, and artistry.

 ABV: 45% (90 proof). 

Fun Fact: Hoping to reduce waste and ease environmental impact, Orphan Barrel works with distilleries to repurpose barrels that have already been used.

Our Guarantee: We always buy and source direct, so rest assured: your bourbon will arrive in your hands with pristine provenance. Secure your order today!
