Whiskey Hotline: Oola Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey

Tagged:

This Seattle distillery was founded in 2010 and has been consistently delivering quality and taste ever since. Whether it’s whiskey, vodka, or gin this is a distillery that should be on your radar. Waitsburg is a 4-grain bourbon (corn, wheat, rye, and barley) and is full of depth. Lots of classic rye spiciness on the nose with an unmistakably creamy wheat mouthfeel. Waitsburg starts its life in 10-gallon barrels before being transferred to more traditional 53-gallon barrels for extended aging. It’s youthful and fresh, but without all the excessive oak you usually get from small barrels.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Sherried Treasure

Tagged:

Looks like a Manhattan, tastes like a dream. Bartender Ian built this cocktail based off of what our Founding Fathers were drinking, which apparently included a lot of rum. Back then colonists considered alcohol an essential food group, a cure-all for the sick, and an important ingredient that held their society together. We think this boozy mix is exactly what Adams, Washington and Hancock would sip while discussing today’s politics.

Celebrate America’s Signature Holiday with America’s Signature Whiskey: Rye

Tagged:

Bourbon may officially be America’s spirit, and the 4th of July our celebration of independence, but two important traditions existed at least as early, if not before. Thanksgiving Day and Rye Whiskey. In the early years of American whiskey production, rye was the dominant style, especially in the east, eventually supplanted by the sweeter, rounder and easier to produce bourbon. As you give thanks, raise a glass of the spirit that shaped our whiskey tradition.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Jazz Age

Tagged:

Originally, the Sazerac cocktail was made with French brandy. In 1873, the recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail was altered to replace the French brandy with American Rye whiskey. We decided to recreate the original with Hennessy Cognac – plus ginger syrup, a few dashes of barrel aged bitters, and of course, a heavy absinthe rinse.

Binny’s Handpicks from Oppidan

Tagged:

Oppidan is located in Wheeling, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. They are incorporating a Solera technique with bourbon, and also producing a beautiful rye. At the Whiskey Hotline, we love young rye done right. We’ve also been finding whiskey from smaller barrels that taste much older than you would think. We were fortunate enough to sit down with the team from Oppidan a few months ago and selected 3 gorgeous ryes and 2 bourbons. These are all bottled at cask strength, and well worth seeking out.
