The corn used for this whiskey is sourced from just a couple of miles from the distillery located in Western Massachusetts. The mash bill is 90% corn and 10% barley and is distilled in a small copper lined pot still. It is aged briefly in used oak and cherrywood that are cut, milled, and charred on site.

Tasting Notes

"The cherrywood definitely comes through on the nose and palate with apples and cherries taking a prominent role. Clean, fresh corn on the nose becomes more of a roasted, toasted quality on the palate and the whiskey has a slick, but sweet profile. Lively straightforward, this is one of the few corn whiskeys you should seek out to enjoy on its own."
