4 year old

bourbon

Dueling Grounds Distillery released its 4 year old Linkumpinch Bourbon October of 2020. It is available in a cask strength single barrel edition, as well as a very small batch Bottled in Bond. Both bottlings were limited to less than 500 bottles each for 2020.  

 

“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 at one of these

locations in Kentucky or Tennessee.
