Hard Truth Distilling Co., an Indiana-based sweet mash distillery, announced the release of its Origin Series – three, limited-supply, single barrel whiskeys crafted in Kentucky during Hard Truth’s early exploration into what is now their whiskey portfolio, including the award-winning Hard Truth Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey.

Limited to only 35 barrels and three expressions, bottles of Hard Truth Kentucky Sweet Mash Bourbon Whiskey (BW-1, 12 barrels), Wheated Bourbon Whiskey (BW-2, 12 barrels) and Rye Whiskey (RW-1, 11 Barrels), are currently available in six states: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee.

Hard Truth Distilling Co., based in Nashville, Indiana, currently produces more than 20 premium spirits, and all of its products are made with 90 percent locally produced ingredients. Smith said that is another reason these barrels are so uncommon for the Indiana-based distillery.

John Behling, Hard Truth’s Chief Marketing Officer, said the company is preparing to release other extremely limited whiskeys. “No details yet, but Bryan is preparing other unique casks for sale on a rationed basis,” said Behling. “Stay tuned for more information.”

All three Kentucky Single Barrel releases are bottled at barrel strength, uncut and unfiltered. Each expression has an MSRP of $69.99. Flavor profiles are as follows:

HARD TRUTH KENTUCKY SWEET MASH BOURBON WHISKEY (BW-1) — 12 Barrels: Mash Bill #1, features a classic bourbon mash bill containing corn, rye, and malted barley.

HARD TRUTH KENTUCKY SWEET MASH WHEATED BOURBON WHISKEY (BW-2): 12 Barrels, Mash Bill #2, features a mash bill containing corn, wheat, and malted barley.

HARD TRUTH KENTUCKY SWEET MASH RYE WHISKEY (RW-1): 11 Barrels, Mash Bill #1, is the predecessor to Hard Truth’s Indiana Sweet Mash Rye, Mash Bill #1.

Hard Truth Distilling Co. produces more than 20 premium spirits, including critically acclaimed Hard Truth Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey and top-selling Hard Truth Cinnamon Vodka, Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum, and Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum Cream. Hard Truth’s spirits are distributed in Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming with several new states coming on board in late 2022 and 2023.
