You wrote in your article, "Cleveland Whiskey pours that into a 132-gallon still, where the process of concentrating alcohol by separating it from the water occurs." This implies that Cleveland Whiskey actually distills its own "white dog" (or unaged whiskey). It is my understanding that Cleveland Whiskey buys its whiskey on bulk contract from MGP Ingredients from Lawrenceburg, Ind. and even discloses on its bottles that the state of distillation in Indiana. Now if Cleveland Whiskey has purchase a large 32 inch column still then I stand corrected but please don't be misleading. Cleveland Whiskey is not a distillery they are at best rectifiers.
MGP Ingredients started life as the Seagram's Distillery and has made fine Bourbons and Ryes for decades and many of America's favorite spirits come from its still. However, they are a contract producers and have no actual brands of their own. I buy and enjoy many products that come from MGP. You can do business with MGP in two ways. One is to be a contract buyer where you pay up front to produce a specific recipe of whiskey but this is usually reserved for the big lot purchasers because a batch run on the MGP still produces hundreds of barrels a day. The other way to do business with MGP, which is more common business relationship, is to do a Bulk purchase where you buy what ever MGP has to offer from their standard stock.
