Freeland Spirits celebrates the women of the craft and is one of very few women-owned and women-run distilleries in history. Founder Jill Kuehler named the brand after her grandmother, Master Distiller Molly Troupe was born wearing a pair of chemist goggles and never took them off, and Jesse Brantley, a sommelier with restaurant management experience, joined Freeland to run sales in May of 2018.
Freeland Bourbon pays homage to the South, and to Grandma Freeland, the namesake of Freeland Spirits. Soft caramel, vanilla and spice dance into the whiskey from charred American oak barrels. A final rest in Oregon’s Elk Cove Pinot Noir barrels adds an element of Pacific Northwest terroir. Blended with precision by Master Distiller Molly Troupe to achieve balanced texture and harmony of flavors.
