In the 1820s, somewhere along a patch of grass at Linkumpinch farm near present-day Franklin, Kentucky. Matters of honor were settled with the firing of pistols. A man’s reputation was restored when a musket ball found its target. And the area surrounding Sandford Duncan’s farm soon came to be known as the dueling grounds. These days, Franklin is home to far more agreeable activities. Like the crafting of premium, small-batch bourbon. Aged in charred, white oak, to draw out a sweet, woody flavor all its own.
