About Bear Wallow Distillery

Bear Wallow Distillery, located in Gnaw Bone, is one of the first craft distilleries in Indiana! Using only locally-grown grains to make our whiskey, Bear Wallow creates unique Indiana spirits in an old-fashioned copper pot still. Take a Farm-to-Fifth Tour and see how Bear Wallow’s handcrafted Indiana corn whiskey is made on-site. Try a Whiskey Lovers sample flight or a delicious Moonshine Shake-Up, crafted with real fruit elixirs! And, at Bear Wallow you can do more than just drink your whiskey, you can eat it as well! Be sure to shop the Distillery’s "Eat Your Whiskey" section for a special selection of whiskey-inspired edible creations.

Gnaw Bone Bourbon -  Bear Wallow's #1 selling whiskey,  made from locally grown corn, wheat and malted barley, aged in New American White Oak Charred Barrels, aged and bottled at 100 proof on site. Occasionally single barrel bottlings at barrel strength (around 122 proof) are done. These are very limited (about 60 bottles per barrel) so call ahead if you are interested in sampling.
