White Pike WhiskeyMADE BY FINGER LAKES DISTILLING IN BURDETT, NEW YORK
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SAYS...
"This un-aged whiskey is a great gift because of its versatility – it can be served straight-up or mixed in cocktails – and its unusual production process that produces a clear spirit. We loved it with McClure’s Spicy Bloody Mary mix."
The folks at Finger Lakes Distilling love whiskey, but they were really intrigued by the versatility of un-aged versions. (We're pretty interested in un-aging, too!)
White Pike is smooth but flavorful, because it's made from a blend of corn, malted barley and (rarely distilled) spelt. You'd never mistake it for vodka, yet you can use it in all kinds of drinks where aged whiskey would be all wrong. Behold, a whiskey that's versatile for mixing in cocktails but still interesting enough to sip straight. A win-win. And of course, we love that it's made using only local grains and water.

Did you know?
To earn the name of whiskey, grain spirits must go into a wooden cask for some period of aging. White Pike spends less than 18 minutes, meeting the legal definition, but holding true to its identity as an un-aged (aka white) whiskey.
40% alcohol by volume. Comes in a 750ml bottle.
