While looking for unique and interesting whiskies for the tasting on Friday, I came across this – Leopold Brothers Blackberry Whiskey. It looks like it could be a great product! Leopold Bros. is a family-owned small batch distillery located in Denver. Every bottle of spirits that they produce is hand-numbered and so their products are hard to find … especially in the UK!
Their flavoured whiskies are made by de-stemming and crushing fruit, then mixing it with new make whisky. It is then aged in second-fill bourbon barrels. I am really looking forward to trying the Blackberry Whisky this Friday!
Some of the other spirits they make include gin, vodka, and absinthe … which I would like to compare to traditional european absinthe.
