HARTFIELD & CO., FORMERLY THE GENTLEMAN, IS A SMALL BATCH DISTILLERY LOCATED IN PARIS, KY. WE ARE THE FIRST LICENSED DISTILLERY IN BOURBON COUNTY SINCE PROHIBITION FORCED THE CLOSURE OF THE DISTILLING INDUSTRY IN 1919. IT’S ODD TO THINK THAT OUT OF ALL THE BOURBON CURRENTLY PRODUCED IN THE WORLD, NONE OF IT HAS BEEN PRODUCED IN BOURBON COUNTY – UNTIL NOW.
Our Bourbon Whiskey is made from 62% Corn, 19% Rye, 19% Malted Barley. Most mashbills use somewhere between 5-7% Malted Barley. By pushing ours to 19%, it brings in some smoke, leather and deep tobacco notes into a what is a traditional Bourbon mashbill. We distill in batch around 115-120, which means that everything that comes off our still goes directly into the barrels. From there we use 6.3 gallon barrels with an aging time of 5-6 months. We give a nod to the idea of Bottled in Bond by bottling our Bourbon at 100 proof.
The taste profile for our Bourbon is sweet and spicy, smokey and smooth. Deep flavors of stone fruits play on the front end with an incredibly long finish reminding most of an excellent Scotch Whiskey.
