Sour Mash Whiskeys

New Liberty Distillery Launches the 'Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Straight'

— September 21, 2022 — Lifestyle
New Liberty Distillery has unveiled the ‘Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Straight Bourbon Whiskey,’ a premium expression aged for three years and distilled using grains like Pennsylvania corn, malted rye, and malted barley. The ‘Sour Mash’ version uses a unique sour mash technique, similar to the process used to create Jamaican rums. The drink is best enjoyed neat or in a bourbon cocktail due to its tasting notes of spice, apple cinnamon donuts, nutmeg, and crystalized sugar. On the nose, ‘Bloody Butcher Sour Mash Straight Bourbon Whiskey’ smells of leather tobacco pouches, pound cake, and dried leaves.

“I’m thrilled to put out the Sour Mash version especially because of all the local tie ins: the sourdough starter from High Street Philly, the rye and barley from Deer Creek Malthouse, and the Bloody Butcher corn itself from Castle Valley Mill, ” said Robert Cassell, Owner and Master Distiller of New Liberty Distillery.
