Leopold Bros Whiskey and Amaro

Leopold Bros. American Small Batch Whiskey...$29.99
43% Alc. by Vol. 86 Proof
We begin by fermenting a traditional sour mash of corn and rye at colder temperatures, but without the aid of refrigeration. Fermentation takes more time this way, but results in a softer whiskey and develops subtle flavors such as vanilla, pear, and raspberry. We then distill the mash in our small batch copper potstill on grain to extract fuller and rounder flavors from the corn and rye. Finally, we barrel the distillate at the Pre-Prohibition standard of 98 proof, so that the barrel may add subtle notes of oak and vanilla and does not overpower the finished whiskey.

Fernet Leopold Highland Amaro...$29.99
40% Alc. by Vol. 80 Proof
Our Fernet Leopold Highland Amaro embraces the herbal notes of traditional fernets, while offering a pronounced and entirely unique mint quality. We achieve this by steeping a flight of bitter roots in our spirit, followed by rose petals, elderflower, chamomile, and honeysuckle, which lend depth and a complex finish. These ingredients will rest for weeks before they are drained and racked into Chardonnay barrels for months of aging. Every barrel is handbottled, to preserve the integrity of the flavor and aroma.
