New Southern Revival Sorghum WhiskeyMADE BY HIGH WIRE DISTILLING IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA
Incredibly smooth with a lingering finish, this deep amber whiskey was inspired by one of Charleston's favorite desserts: local chef Mike Lata's signature sticky sorghum pudding. Sweet!
If you haven't spent much time South of the Mason Dixon, here's a little refresher: Sorghum is a grass – yes, a grass! – that's processed like sugarcane to produce sorghum syrup, a molasses-like sweetener that can be drizzled on biscuits, used to sweeten pancakes or stirred into cocktails.
This whiskey is part of High Wire's New Southern Revival brand, a series of spirits celebrating the diverse agricultural traditions of the American South. Distilled from 100% sorghum grown and hand-harvested on a Mennonite farm in central Tennessee, it's got notes of butterscotch, baked nectarines, vanilla and banana bread.

Head distiller Scott Blackwell knows his grains and his baked goods – pre-High Wire, he founded a highly successful natural and organic bakery. So sip this one neat or over a single large ice cube after dinner for a sweet taste of Southern terroir.
