Starlight Distillery’s Carl T Bourbon is now available! Appropriately named after the Grandfather of 6th generation co-owners Greg & Ted Huber, the Huber’s felt it only fitting to title this signature blend after their 4th generation grandfather “Carl T” who had a love for bourbon.
This signature blend of bourbon is comprised of 58% corn, 27% rye, and 15% malted barley. Distilled in Huber’s 80 gallon copper pot still from Germany and then transferred to 53 gallon charred, American White Oak barrels from three different cooperage companies and four different barrel styles, continue to add quality and complexity to this signature blend.
|Huber’s Orchard & Winery began farming back in 1843 when our ancestors settled in Starlight, IN from Baden-Baden, Germany . Growing primarily fruit, our farm began to diversify in 1978 when we opened the doors of our winery.
Today, we have over 550 acres of farmland on which we grow many fruits, vegetables, Christmas trees, pumpkins, and grapes. We have a children’s farm park, farm market, cheese shoppe, ice cream factory, winery, gift shoppe, banquet facility, Indiana’s first distillery – The Starlight Distillery, and proudly participate as one of the seven wineries on Indiana’s first wine trail – The Indiana Uplands Wine Trail.
Diversification was an important strategy for us and helped to keep business consistent throughout the year so that we became less seasonal. Certainly, diversification has allowed us to keep seven generations of Huber’s busy and working on the farm.
An important thing to remember about diversification is it does not happen over night but over time. Patience, passion, and planning are vital to the success of diversified farms. A challenge with diversification is quality – ensuring that your pace of growth and diversification maintains the quality your business strives for.
