Dirty Helen Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Our Sporadically Released Cask Strength Bourbon
Great Lakes Distillery is proud to offer Dirty Helen Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey to coincide with the release of the updated biography of “Dirty Helen” Cromwell. Helen was a Milwaukee legend who according to Milwaukee writer Bobby Tanzilo “was both beloved and reviled, celebrated and derided, an entrepreneur and bon vivant, who lived hard and played hard.” Nothing less than barrel strength whiskey distilled, aged, and bottled in the town Helen called home would honor her lasting memory.
