Idle Hands 5 Year Heavy Rye Bourbon
Idle Hands was named after a now gone East Village Rock n’ Roll, Beer Whiskey and Burger Bar. Idle had a great American Whiskey and Beer selection and no phony pretense, great place to explore beer and bourbon with friends and a great soundtrack
Dave Schmier worked with the former owner Rob Morton to blend 2 thirteen barrel batches of 5+ YO Bourbon. Bourbon is all the same Heavy Rye mash bill used in Tumblin’ Dice. Indiana distilled – 60% Corn, 36% Rye, 4% Barley. Proof point range was selected to Rob’s preference.
This release is a Follow up to the 2019 Idle Hands that was a NY-only edition of about 219 bottles. That one featured 2 , 13 yo barrels of Bourbon and quickly sold out. This one is a great sipper and at a more accessible price point. Total of about 1,000 6-bottle cases produced for select national distribution.
