Welcome to the PATH OF TOTALITY

A once in a lifetime event like the solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, deserves a once in a lifetime bourbon like Hayner's Path of Totality Bourbon.  This is a statewide limited release of only 1500 bottles. This is not your everyday bourbon, or your everyday bourbon bottle.  First, the bourbon is a rare 10 year old Kentucky bourbon with a 75c/13r/9B mash bill.  While that's hard to find, we took it a step further and designed Ohio's first ever illuminated bourbon label.  Path of Totality is available now at Hayner Distilling and 29 state liquor stores, all located in the Path of Totality.


Hayner Distilling is proud to announce that Hayner Bourbon, Hayner Rye and Hayner Original Rye have won multiple awards in three prestigious spirits competitions! (See, we told you this stuff was good.)

Hayner Bourbon just won a SILVER medal at the 2022 San Francisco Spirits Competition! The San Francisco Spirits Competition is the pinnacle of spirits competitions and to receive any medal is an honor.  This Silver Medal adds to Hayner Bourbon's collection of a GOLD from the 2021 John Barleycorn Awards, a GOLD from the 2021 Artisan Awards and a SILVER medal from the 2021 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition. 

Hayner Rye also won a SILVER Medal at the 2022 San Francisco Spirits Competition! Hayner Rye recently won a DOUBLE GOLD, the highest award given, at the 2021 John Barleycorn Awards. 

Finally, Hayner Original Rye, just brought home a GOLD medal from the 2022 John Barleycorn Spirits Competition! Hayner Original Rye is a double oaked 6 year Rye whiskey full of bold flavors with a sweet finish. To honor our heritage, Hayner Original Rye features an original Hayner label from 1910.

These blind judging competitions are considered the most respected judging events in the USA. Medals are only awarded to the best whiskeys in their category. It's an honor to win these medals with the first three Hayner whiskeys released in over 100 years. 


It truly does taste good to be back!


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 complementary to the original Hayner. 

We know Lewis would be proud as we share Hayner's history with a new generation of whiskey drinkers and once again bottle incredible tasting whiskey near those same river banks.
