An old family recipe that has been handed down through the generations. Joe Herber (great-uncle to Badlands Distillery co-owner Jim Herber) & four of Joe’s brothers were illegally operating a still on the Herber Ranch, in the early 1920’s & 1930’s, where the Herber family still lives today. Joe Herber flavored his carefully distilled spirits with a brown sugar syrup and colored it with oak barrels. He had a reputation for producing the tastiest, most healthful, & smoothest whiskey in all of South Dakota Territory. The brothers sold theirs spirits to state politicians, chief of police all over the state & even the governor at that time. Eventually they were caught by the feds in a raid that ended with the still being destroyed, many casks & kegs full of whiskey thrown into the White River & Great Uncle Joe spending a year in jail for bootlegging. 80 proof or 40% ABV.
