About the Bourbon

Indigo’s Hour Straight Bourbon Whiskey’s mash bill is 68% corn, 28% rye, and 4% malt, which gives a flavor profile that the brand says “starts with creamy vanilla and transitions through toasted oak, baking spices, and red fruit, ending with a smooth, velvety finish.”

This bourbon is now available in a limited batch for $225 per 750mL bottle, at select retailers and on ReserveBar.

The Story Behind Indigo’s Hour

The story behind Indigo’s Hour includes its meticulous aging process and the cultural and natural inspirations for its packaging.

The bottle design pays homage to the spirit’s origin story – drawing inspiration from the crops, flora, and fauna native to the heartlands of America’s whiskey regions.

The spirit animal is the Pipevine Swallowtail, the most colorful butterfly to call Indiana home, where this rare whiskey is distilled. Part of the label was inspired by The Witches Tree, a legendary maple tree found in Louisville, KY just a few minutes from where Indigo’s Hour was aged.

The landscapes depicted in the background were inspired by the creek that sits amongst the rivers and marshlands in Cascade Hollow, Tullahoma, Tennessee, where Indigo’s Hour was bottled.

Indigo’s Hour, like other Orphan Barrel Whiskeys, embodies the fleeting nature of exceptional liquid craftsmanship. Inspired by the time of day, which we call Indigo’s Hour, between dusk and dark when the sky is at its most beautiful and a “bourbon beckons to be sipped.”
