PENELOPE BOURBON

with Owner Michael Paladini

and Celebrate National Bourbon Day!


We are thrilled to be partnering up with this new Bourbon producer, crafting fine whiskey being bottled by local friends of the Bottle Shop. When Michael Paladini teamed up with his life-long friend and childhood next-door neighbor, Danny Polise to make a whiskey, we knew right away we were interested in tasting it and learning more. Penelope is a local, New Jersey-based brand, headquartered in Rumson, NJ, making high quality Bourbon made from four grain straight Kentucky mash. Aged in American white oak barrels, the first batch, #1 consisted of 1900 bottles, 80 proof. Named after Mike's daughter, Penelope is winning awards for its balanced, flavorful style. Look for aromas of cream, butterscotch, hints of spice, smoke and mint. On the smooth palate, sweet cream, roasted nuts and tangerine citrus come through with ripe pear, orange zest and spice on the finish. This is a crowd-pleasing style, for both Bourbon aficionado's and folks who are new to drinking Bourbon. Penelope’s taste profile is heavily reliant on the Wheat and Rye grains being uniquely aged separately with corn/barley grains in new charred American Oak barrels to maximize flavor. Penelope Bourbon is non-chill filtered.

Penelope Bourbon


When we participated in the 2019 Bourbon Bacon and Blues event in Asbury Park, Penelope was the hottest table of the day! Mike whipped up cocktails as well as served straight bourbon, and the crowd was enamored. Aged in American white oak barrels, this first batch, #1 consisted of 1900 bottles, 80 proof. Named after Mike's daughter, Penelope is winning awards for its balanced, flavorful style. Look for aromas of cream, butterscotch, hints of spice, smoke and mint. On the smooth palate, sweet cream, roasted nuts and tangerine citrus come through with ripe pear, orange zest and spice on the finish. Make a whiskey-style 'Moscow Mule' by adding ginger beer and lime juice, or create a summery cocktail with Penelope, Saint Germaine and a little Creme de Peche over ice.
