How is peanut butter whiskey made?

This will depend on the brand you’re sipping. Some make a regular whiskey with corn and barley, then add a mix of flavorings to get that peanut buttery goodness, others simply infuse the two. Either way, the recipe is up for interpretation. The point here though is to get a beverage that tastes like, well, peanut butter.

Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey

One of the first in the peanut butter whiskey space, Skrewball is a well renowned peanut butter whiskey from California. Creamy on the nose, this peanut butter whiskey is beloved by many for its peanut butter-hazelnut flavor. If you’re feeling nostalgic, add a little Chambord and make an adult PB&J cocktail.

Aroma: creamy with hints of peanut butter and caramel. The creaminess has a hint of irish cream scent.
Taste: Super sweet. Solid creaminess and pretty strong essence of peanut butter. Overall a solid addition to a boozy coffee or hot chocolate if you feel like you want a sweet peanut butter kick.
ABV: 35%
