“Sip it and dream — it is a dream itself. Sip it and say there is no solace for the soul, no tonic for the body like old Bourbon whiskey.” – J. Soule Smith
Sour Mash Manifesto was created with a pretty simple mission in mind: To provide relevant, usable content to whiskey consumers of all levels and expertise, share my passion for American Whiskey, and be a trusted whiskey resource for readers. It has been many years since the site was active with consistent content, and for that I apologize. However, it is my hope that you will find some of the reviews, educational posts, and industry-related stories relevant still today.
During the last decade the whiskey industry in America has transformed and grown (understatement!), producing more whiskey than at any point in our history. All the while, the popularity of Bourbon, Rye, and American Whiskey of all types has never been hotter, more in-demand, or mainstream. When this website started almost a decade ago, it was altogether different industry. It has been fantastic to watch, and tough on the wallet!!! Such is the case of supply and demand.
Whether or not Sour Mash Manifesto will become active again remains to be seen. The world has too many blogs and publications on whiskey as it is. However, as mentioned, the site was never started out of “need” and more out of a passion for a fantastic product (and all that goes into its creation). Given that, who knows if or when it will crank back up again.
Until then please don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Thank you for visiting.
Drink your Whiskey!
