Who makes it? 1350 Distilling, Whiskey is sourced
Mash Bill: The Guardian and Code Four are both 99% Corn, aged 3 years. Leatherneck is a Rye whiskey
Our third mail call from 1350 Distilling included 5 bottles! We put all 5 to the tast test, the Guardian Bourbon is great all around bourbon thats an easy sipper. The Leatherneck has a little more to it, that’s because it’s heavy on the rye and that spice shines through without being overpowering. A cube tames it down and lets more flavor through. Next was the Code Four Cask Strength, this was Kris’s Favorite while Erik preferred the Guardian. The Code Four definitely packs more of a punch coming in at 115 proof and it lets you know it! Good flavor, picks up more with the addition of an icecube. The Five Alarm is Bourbon and Cinnamon, no sugar here. If you’re thinking Fireball then you’ve got it all wrong. Lastly the Gin is interesting since it’s base is made from sugarbeets and 6 other ingredients which one is a closely guarded secret.
How much: from 40- 50$ but for Code Four it’ll run 70$
Phil Bragg retired from the Marines after 27 years of service as a mechanical engineer. Then with wife Kandis and 2 other friends turned his hobby into a business and created 1350 Distilling. 13 stripes and 50 stars, after you know that it will stick with you forever. The center piece is a custom made steam injected still that is shaped like a military round that puts out 100 gallons of distillate. This military themed distillery is high on community and always there for the veterans. We met Phil Bragg in person and took the tour and we’ll never forget it. Had such a great time, can’t wait to do it again.
