    Join us in the Yankee Doodle Tap Room for this week’s Whiskey Wednesday Tasting of Bulleit. Enjoy $7 Shots, sip or shoot you choose. 

    “Bulleit® Bourbon is inspired by the whiskey pioneered by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only ingredients of the very highest quality are used. The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit® Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn, and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone filtered water. Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit® Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that's distinctively clean and smooth.
    Medium amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. Mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak, and nutmeg. Finish is long, dry, and satiny with a light toffee flavor.”

    “In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. broke 'the rules' by mixing small grains into the mash of a traditional corn base. A Maryland transplant unafraid to stand out amidst the residing establishment, Basil conjectured that the spicy flavor of rye would be a striking complement to the sweet smoothness of corn in his distillery's standard bourbon. And much to the chagrin of the traditionalist set, Basil was right. His recipe was a masterpiece, resulting in a unique, singular small batch bourbon whiskey that was blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.
    Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's® is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden's® is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.
    Artfully aged to taste. 80 proof. Golden amber color. Aroma of spice, tea, hint of peppermint. Taste of spicy, peppery, honey, gentle bite.”

  • Town Branch Tasting

    09/09/2015

    Join us in the Yankee Doodle Tap Room for this week’s Whiskey Wednesday Tasting of Town Branch. Enjoy $7 Shots, sip or shoot you choose. 5-cl
    “Aged in new, charred white oak barrels, Town Branch is infused with a golden amber honey color, which is an inviting introduction to this masterfully crafted bourbon. Pleasant woody and oaky aromas lead into caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and hints of cherry. The lavish and complex flavors are smooth and sweet with a gentle warming leading to a long finish. Named for the Town Branch waterway upon which Lexington was founded and once was the site of much bourbon production, Town Branch®Bourbon celebrates Lexington’s rich distilling history.”

    “History: Fate is a fickle thing. In 2001, when we purchased the Tuthilltown Gristmill to open a rock climber’s ranch, the neighbors balked. So we had to find another way. The 240-year history of the mill led us to it. Grain, water, yeast and a new purpose: We decided to make whiskey.
    With our own skills and a lot of hard work, we converted the two granaries into the first whiskey distillery in New York State since Prohibition.
    We didn’t know anything about distilling whiskey. We decided not to think “out of the box.” Instead we burned the box and started fresh. For two years we traveled to distilleries and talked to experts around the globe. All the while building our distillery, acquiring our permits and waiting for our stills to arrive.
    It took six months of experimentation to produce great, rich whiskey by hand, one batch at a time. Along the way we changed the way whiskey is made and we changed our lives.
    The Industrial Revolution dies at the beginning of our driveway. We’re about handcrafted spirits. Our Distillerymen are always in direct contact with the materials and the spirit of the distillery.
    From grain to glass, we take great care and pride in all of our spirits. We’ve captured local flavor and ambience using the agricultural resources of local farmers while leaving a smaller footprint on the environment.
    Like true New Yorkers, we’ve toughed it out and thrived. Our staff is honored and thrilled to have been named “Best Artisan Distiller of 2010” by the American Distilling Institute. Just regular folk making whiskey that has earned its place on the top shelf. It was quite a climb, but it sure looks good from here.
