Tincup American Whiskey is the brainchild of Colorado-based Jess Graber. A distiller as a hobby for 30 years, he turned full-time in 2004. A high rye whiskey, made with a bourbon style profile but more powerful and spicier, the cap also works as a cup.
Another bottling by High West while their own spirit matures, showing off their ability to select great whiskeys. This is a blend of 6 and 10 year old bourbon produced in honour of the nascent American Prairie Reserve, an area the size of Connecticut that will hopefully one day be the largest grassland wildlife reserve in the USA.
A three year-old peated single malt from Portland, Oregon, McCarthy's has been picking up followers rapidly on this side of the pond in recent years. The Clear Creek distillery is one of the pioneers of US micro-distilling and this terrific single malt is testament to their hard work.
A collaborative whiskey from High West, taking spirit from the USA and Scotland to produce a one-of-a-kind bottling. It's a blend of straight bourbon and rye, with high corn and rye mashbills respectively, with a peaty Scottish single malt. A fantastic combination of sweet corn, floral rye and smoky Scotch.
Corsair Rasputin Malt comes from the artisan distillers based in Kentucky and Tennessee. This hopped whiskey is made by distilling Imperial stout and passing it through hops to add spicy and floral notes to the chocolate flavour of the stout. A complex hopped whiskey.
Wild Turkey Forgiven is a blend of 78% 6 year old bourbon and 22% 4 year old rye whiskies. Apparently initially produced due to a mix-up at the distillery, the result was so good they decided to release it.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
A great idea from the folks at Wasmund's - a 2 litre new charred oak cask, two 70cl bottles of their single malt spirit and the challenge of maturing your own 'whisky'. It'll pick up flavour quickly in a barrel this small so it's perfect for experimentation.
