Rock Town Distillery Arkansas

Founded by Phil Brandon in 2010, there hadn’t been a legal distillery in central Arkansas in decades, Pre-prohibition was probably the last time legal distilling was carried out, that was until Phil Brandon lost his job.

The Rock Town Distillery was created with one mission. To make sure every possible element used to make Rock Town’s spirits came from Arkansas. From the soft, red winter wheat for the vodka and gin. To the charred, white-oak barrels that store the bourbon. Carefully crafting the vodka, gin, and bourbon in small batches. Every bottle is hand-labelled, the goal is to ensure the highest quality spirits and to never cut corners. 
Principle Brands
Arkansas Hickory Smoked Whiskey.
Arkansas Young Bourbon Whiskey.
Arkansas Lightning also available as

What is a Winger's Guide?
Winger's Guides are compelling 10 page e-books designed to help you learn a subject fast.

The guides are not designed to make you an expert in a subject but rather they are written by experts giving you the "must know" elements in each subject. Consider them a personal knowledge upgrade.

The Winger's Guides are based on 3 basic rules. as some  credited experts will now explain:

"If you can't explain something simply, you don't understand it." ― Albert Einstein

"You have to learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make them all yourself." ― Hyman G. Rickover

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." ― Benjamin Franklin
