Penelope Bourbon, French Oak Stave Finished Architect Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Penelope Bourbon is a company that was crafted in the classic entrepreneurial tradition. Mike Paladini and his wife, Kerry teamed up with his close friend and childhood next door neighbor, Danny Polise. Both grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ. They began to embark on creating a bourbon that everyone could enjoy and love.
Both found out in 2018 that their wives were expecting. Mike and Kerry always knew that if they had a girl, her name would be Penelope. The day they found out they were having girl, a light bulb went off. Mike and Kerry decided they wanted to bring together two things they both love so dearly – their soon-to-be baby girl, Penelope and Straight Bourbon Whiskey. A company was born.
We believe that a team should be, well, a team – collaborating and working together to achieve good things. We think it’s the best way to work, and the most fun. From our founder to our Penelope Bourbon Ambassadors to our newest hires, we’re an eclectic group of Bourbon lovers, weekend warriors and food enthusiast, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
