In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with alternate sounds until a great record emerged. Playing on the artistically creative concept of an “alternate take,” We experimented with adding a new take on the scratch-made whiskey by exploring alternate barrel finishings, for the first of the seriers we are using barrels with previously aged our own Barrel Honey Rum. This whiskey starts in our brewery as a complex beer consisting of mostly specialty malts, including Applewood smoked, coffee kiln and crystal malts. We ferment this beer with our proprietary and flavorful Doggie Ale yeast right alongside beers like 60 Minute IPA and SeaQuench Ale. By tapping into our world-class brewery this whiskey accesses the very best ingredients, equipment and expertise, including removing the grain solids from the liquid prior to fermentation. This process along with our batch-distillation creates a base whiskey that’s more delicate and nuanced than a typical American style whiskey. Alternate Takes: Volume 1 is then aged onsite in new charred American oak barrels, then finished in rum casks which previously aged our Barrel Honey Rum (a rum made with sugar cane molasses, honey and aged in American Oak.). The result is a malt whiskey with layers of complexity and exceptional smoothness.View all products by Dogfish HeadCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
