For the bourbon, the distillery uses an extensive aging process to produce what they call a “very mellow and smooth early bourbon,” according to a Facebook post.

Aaron Pence, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Three Rivers said the bourbon has not yet hit the Fort Wayne market, but should later this week. Retailers will announced at that time.

Three Rivers is northeast Indiana’s first distillery since the Prohibition-era. The distillery also bottles vodka, gin, two varieties of rum, and un-aged whiskey.
