Get to know our new and much anticipated bourbon style spirit – Johnny Handsome - paired with a menagerie of cured, spiced, herbed or smoked meats at our latest event, Meat & Neat, on November 22!
Back in 2017, we set aside some pure corn spirit (71% alc) in a new charred barrel and crossed our fingers that it would mature into a handsome young bourbon style spirit. Fast forward to today and it’s time to unveil our new whiskey. Johnny Handsome is ready to come out to play! He was a strong spirited lad at first, so we’ve mellowed him out a tad and brought him down to about 50% alc. Still, the whiskey is beautifully bold and best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water!
If there is one thing to pair with a handsome whiskey, it’s the savoury goodness of well-crafted meat cuts and cures. Hence, we are hosting our first whiskey tasting event, Meat & Neat (November 22nd, 6 to 9 pm), and working with Graze and Cardamom to provide a charcuterie board for your grazing pleasure.
Along with the reveal of the Johnny Handsome spirit, we will also be previewing the not-yet-bottled Maple Bourbon and the rye whiskey (still aging in barrels) to be released in 2021. Enjoy the opportunity to get a first-hand look into what’s shaping up at the Roots and Wings Distillery!
