4 year old
bourbon release

Dueling Grounds Distillery is pleased to announce the release of its 4 year old Linkumpinch Bourbon. It is available in a cask strength single barrel edition, as well as a very small batch 100 proof expression.

Both bottlings are limited to less than 500 bottles each for 2020. In

the future all Linkumpinch Bourbon will be aged a minimum of 4 yrs. 


“Reaching the 4 year milestone is major accomplishment for Dueling

Grounds Distillery. We are a small team making all of our Bourbon from scratch with local ingredients. We make it, barrel it and bottle it all right here in Simpson County" distillery owner Marc Dottore said.

The uniquely handcrafted batches of Dueling Grounds Distillery’s Linkumpinch bourbon are double-pot distilled on site in Simpson County, KY, aged four years in charred oak barrels, featuring corn and wheat from the local area.

Our bourbon can be purchased in-store or curbside. The distillery, located at 208 Harding Road, is easily accessible from Exit 6 and Exit 2 on I-65, and holds tours and tastings Monday through

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the top of each hour.
