Watch Tuesday, December 6, 2022 on the link here and above as Hard Truth Distilling Co  Mater Distiller Bryan Bryan Smith joins Bourbon experts to do a live tasting of the Origin Series – three, limited-supply, single barrel whiskeys crafted in Kentucky.

Yes, their distillery is based in Nashville, Indiana, but this very limited collection happened during Hard Truth’s early exploration into what is now their distinguished whiskey portfolio, including the award-winning Hard Truth Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey.

But we did say 6 whiskeys. Here is a little more on the first three.
