Corn Whiskey, 50% alc./vol. (100 proof) 375 ml

Delaware Phoenix Corn Whiskey

Corn whiskey is often associated with moonshine. A white spirit often of ill-repute and origin that shows up in a mason jar with varying quality to the spirit within. Delaware Phoenix corn whiskey is nothing like that, not ever!

I use certified organic corn grown here in New York as 80% of the grain bill, with the remainder being malted barley. It made using the same kind of early 19th century methods I base my bourbon production on. The difference will be in the aging, and corn whiskey must be aged in a USED barrel, not a new one. This allows it to be distinguished from its cousin bourbon. This is a smooth spirit with a strong flavor of buttered popcorn. married with some oak notes.

The whiskey is aged in 25 gallon used charred oak barrels for typically under 24 months (usually about 6) each barrel is a unique expression combining grain, distillation, oak and storage environment for a rich, deep flavor as bold as the early settlers of Walton!

There is always a limited availability of this whiskey given the great attention to detail and laborious production methods. There may be only one or two of the 25 gallon barrels produced a year. So that's not a lot of bottles. You will not find Delaware Phoenix at every store. So when you see one, you may want to acquire it then rather than waiting until later. You may come back and find out it's gone.
