Whisky Advocate says:
O.H. Ingram launched earlier this year with a blend of bourbon and rye that was aged in its “floating rickhouse”—a custom barge moored on the Mississippi River in Ballard County, Kentucky. The motion of the vessel, plus the temperature swings it experiences, create fairly unique conditions for the whiskeys’ maturation. Founder Hank Ingram gave us more details on the company and its plans.
