Defiant American Single Malt Whisky
Blue Ridge Distilling Co. // North Carolina, USA
Tim Ferris is the founder of Blue Ridge Distilling Co. and the man behind Defiant American Single Malt Whisky. Inspired by his limitless adventures in the ocean as a salvage diver, he set out to do the same on land as a distiller. This whiskey is distilled from 100% malted "two-row premium brewer's barley" and aged for up to 6 months in stainless tanks using toasted, American oak spirals instead of oak barrels (which means it is technically not an American single malt). It's bottled at 41% ABV.

"Defiant opens with honey and vanilla notes that meld into a malty spiciness, encouraging exploration. The same qualities appear on the palate, but there's a woody sharpness underlying the sweetness and spice here--the defiant edge that sets this spirit apart."
