Rock Town Distillery, a distillery located in Arkansas in the US, has introduced its first whiskey, Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey. This young bourbon is said to be the first legal bourbon whiskey ever commercially produced in the great state of Arkansas.
Rock Town, known to be the first legal distillery since prohibition, said Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey is handmade in very small batches and only around 114 cases were bottled of this first roll-out.
The distillery will send some of these to Illinois and Tennessee, as well as liquor stores and restaurants across Arkansas.
