Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey, the newest member of MGP’s Rack House Series, is a blend of incredible bourbon and whiskies married together to create a smooth and satisfying experience in every sip.

Eight & Sand refers to the eighth (and fastest) notch on a locomotive’s throttle and the sand used on the wheels to prevent slipping. To wish a train crew an “Eight & Sand” is akin to “smooth sailing.”

Eight & Sand celebrates the timeless journey along the American railway with a classic tribute whiskey uniquely crafted by the MGP distillery team in historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

Whether it’s crossing with your favorite mixer or riding the rails all on its own, Eight & Sand is a whiskey whose craftsmanship honors the railroad legends that built this country.
