ALL ABOARD!

For Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey

THE HERITAGE

For over 170 years, Lawrenceburg, Indiana has been distilling, aging and blending fine whiskeys. This rich heritage exemplifies the American spirit: A passion to blaze new trails...to possess the land for the sake of freedom...and prosperity. In the mid-1800’s, this was called Manifest Destiny.

THE SPIRIT

The Transcontinental Railroad was the key to westward expansion, and the rugged opportunists who built it provided a way for countless Americans to follow. To honor the courageous spirit of those who ventured west, we proudly offer Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey.

THE EXPRESSION

“Eight & Sand,” refers to the 8th (and fastest) setting on a locomotive’s throttle, and the sand used on the wheels to prevent slipping. So when you say, “Eight & Sand,” you’re saying, “smooth sailing.”

THE TASTE

Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey is the newest member of MGP’s Rack House Series. It’s an ambitious combination of fine whiskies, sure to provide a smooth and satisfying experience. Spicy rye and cinnamon notes are followed by a touch of caramel at the caboose.

THE PROGRESS

Like the brave Americans who ventured west before us, we’re proud of our journey. Today, MGP produces fine spirits in Lawrenceburg, Indiana and Atchison, Kansas – the home of 8&S locomotive 811.

THE CAUSES

The history of the American railroad is the heartbeat of our brand. That’s why a portion of the profits from Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey is dedicated to supporting railroad museums and train station restoration projects across our great land.

"SMOOTH SAILING!"

In Railroad terms, the phrase “Eight & Sand” means traveling at maximum speed (throttle setting 8) while pouring sand on the rails for traction. In other words, “Smooth Sailing!”
