Penelope Bourbon is a company that was crafted in the classic entrepreneurial tradition. Mike Paladini teamed up with his life long friend and childhood next door neighbor, Danny Polise. Both grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ. They began to embark on creating the highest quality Bourbon that everyone could enjoy and love.
Both found out in 2018 that their wives were expecting. Mike found out that his wife and him were having a baby girl. Her name would be Penelope. The day he found out they were having Penelope a light bulb went off. Mike wanted to bring together two things he loves so dearly – his soon-to-be baby girl Penelope and Straight American Bourbon. A company was born.
