Teton Moonshine Huckleberry Whiskey
Grand Teton // Idaho, USA
Grand Teton Distillery boasts an impressively green operation with water reserves to reduce wasting water, giving their residual mash to farmers, solar energy that also feeds the grid, and charging stations for electric cars. Their huckleberry moonshine is made with local Idaho huckleberries, lemon juice, and sugar (and a base of corn and potato).
Flavored WhiskeyWhiskey flavored with natural or artificial flavors and labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s). Can be made either with or without the addition of sugar. Bottled at 30% ABV or higher.
"While it starts with an astringent corn note that's common for moonshine, the nose gives way to lovely florals. The mouthfeel is surprisingly oily and, though hot at first, it doesn't stay that way long. The aftertaste is where this spirit shines; the huckleberries join the party and linger. Not as sweet as expected with a little citrus--a nice surprise."
