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.

Tasting Notes

"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."
