Product description

Every adventure has a beginning, and ours was Single Malt Whiskey. With bourbon dominating the American craft spirit market, we were inspired us to test new waters with Deerhammer’s cornerstone spirit. Beginning its life as porter-style 100% malted barley whiskey, our Single Malt is shaped by open-air fermentation and double distillation through direct-fire copper pot stills. Then, stored in charred virgin white oak casks, it slumbers at the base of Colorado’s tallest mountains in the beautiful adventure town of Buena Vista. This high alpine climate maximizes the flavor potential of our mash, due to dramatic temperature shifts that can range from 40-80° in a single day. ​ The result is a distinctly American taste of place: aged no less than two years and bottled at 92 proof with notes of sweet coffee, cacao, caramel and spices. In the spirit of the settlers who first ventured west, we invite you to take your first sip with an explorer’s state of mind.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
