The 2013 Summer Release continues the revolutionary craft of creating seasonal whiskies.
This whiskey started it’s life as an IPA; brewed under the guidance of Cottrell Brewing. After retaining the IPA flavors through distillation we aged the whiskey in American oak barrels. Once the aging process was complete, we finished the whiskey by dry hopping with Citra and Sorachi Ace hops for bright and complementary floral notes.
The Summer Release brings the taste of the season through the experience. The nose is hop forward with hints of lemon and grapefruit. With a malty first sip, light mouth feel and a hoppy finish the Summer Release will quickly become a warm weather favorite.
|Why can’t America make a great single malt whiskey?
Michael Reppucci thinks they can. In fact, he quit his job and leveraged his savings to prove it. But, Mike is no fool. He got Master Distiller David Pickerell to help him turn the spirits industry on its ear.
With Dave’s knowledge and Mike’s innovation, they began experimenting with recipes and flavor profiles, creating a flavorful young whiskey along the way.
Soon, thanks to the Sons of Liberty, the question will no longer be: Why can’t America make a great single malt whiskey?
The question will be: What took us so long?
