BORN 1866 - BORN AGAIN 2021
BRINGING TRADITION ALIVE, AGAIN.
155 years ago Lewis Hayner opened a small distillery on the banks of the Miami River in Troy, Ohio. Hayner Distilling grew into one of the largest distilleries in Ohio and the largest mail order whiskey business in America. Known for their superior Bourbon and Ryes, Hayner was shipped directly to doorsteps all across America. Like all distilleries Hayner Distilling closed in 1920 with prohibition. 100 years later, Hayner Distilling has been reborn! From a few surviving bottles we analyzed the original whiskey and working with Bardstown Bourbon Company created a blend complimentary to the original Hayner.
We know Lewis would be proud as we share Hayner's history with a new generation of bourbon drinkers and once again bottle incredible tasting whiskey near those same river banks.
To honor Hayner Distilling's postal heritage of mailing bottles direct to consumers, we postmark every bottle sold. Our first release and postmark was June 4, 2021, the day the new Hayner Distilling launched. Only 500 bottles were sold with the June 4 postmark and they quickly became collector editions. At our distillery location, we also now offer custom dating, so you can stamp your bottle with a date that's special to you such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary.
