Memphis, TN – August 29th, 2023 – Beginning in September, Old Dominick will be releasing the first stops from the Trolley Stop Series by Huling Station. This series of premium whiskeys will offer four distinct expressions, each inspired by a street that was once part of the historic Memphis trolley route. Just like the trolley, which stopped at various locations throughout the city, each whiskey in the Trolley Stop Series will offer a unique and unforgettable sipping experience.
The Main Street Line will showcase the heat of the high-rye mash bill in our Straight Bourbon Whiskey, while the Madison Avenue Line will demonstrate the sweetness that a Straight Wheat Whiskey has to offer. Both lines will showcase the perfectly aged spirits at various proofs throughout different stops of the series.
Master Distiller, Alex Castle states, “For years now, I’ve been holding back barrels from our first production run in Indiana, waiting for the chance to create some truly special blends. Enter the Trolley Stop Series, where our most vintage barrels have combined with a uniquely vintage aspect of Memphis: our downtown trolley lines. As a blender, I really enjoy creating blends that allow you see various aspects of the same liquid. For this series, I chose two radically different proofs - 95 and cask strength - and two uniquely different mash bills. Experience the journey to discover your favorites - wheat or high- rye bourbon, lower proof or higher proof. These batches really are all about exploration.”

About Huling Station by Old Dominick
In 1866, Domenico Canale’s spirits business was booming. Railcars bearing oak-aged whiskeys rolled in and out of the D. Canale & Co. warehouse at Huling Station. Any bottle bearing the Old Dominick brand was known far and wide to be fine whiskey. More than 150 years later, Huling Station by Old Dominick was created as an homage to the whiskeys of 1866 Memphis. In addition to the new releases of the Huling Station Trolly Stop Series, Huling Station by Old Dominick has other products available for purchase including Huling Station Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Huling Station Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and Huling Station Single Barrel Straight Wheat Whiskey.
