A very old and even cooler German release of J.W. Dant. Joseph Washington Dant started distilling during the 1830’s. Completely broke, out of a job and with nothing to look forward to, he famously hollowed out a poplar tree and started using it as a log still. This method he copied from settlers that were unable to use copper stills (as they were as broke as Dant was in their days). This 7-year-old Kentucky Sour Mash bourbon whiskey was produced and bottled in the 1970s, by Schenley, who acquired the Dant Gesthemane distillery in 1952. It was bottled at their plant in Aladdin, PA, for Söhnlein-Import in Germany.
