Makes a killer Manhattan!!
The Fernet Leopold Highland Amaro embraces the herbal notes of traditional fernets, while offering a pronounced mint note. By steeping a flight of bitter roots in our neutral grain spirit followed by rose petals, elderflower, chamomile, and honeysuckle, depth and a complex finish is developed. Afterwards these ingredients will rest for weeks before they are drained and racked into Chardonnay barrels aging. Every barrel is then bottled by hand to preserve the integrity of the flavor and aroma.
And this very limited release!
We saved 1 bottle to add to our (In)Famous Tasting bar at Forsyth. It will be available to purchase by the 3/4oz pour starting at Noon Wednesday July 21st.
Only 5,280 bottles produced of this 1st bottling!
Leopold Bros. Three Chamber Rye Whiskey...$239.99
A Revival of a Lost American Tradition
For over a hundred years, American rye whiskey was commonly produced in what was called a Three Chamber Still to extract not only distillate, but also oils and aromas hidden in the grains. The resulting spirit was marketed as “heavy-bodied” whiskey, but production stopped just after World War II and the still in which it was made became a lost American tradition.
Leopold Bros. painstakingly re-engineered a Three Chamber Still from old manuscripts and grew the heritage grain Abruzzi rye that was favored by Pre-Prohibition distillers to resurrect this one-of-a-kind whiskey.
The Collector’s Edition is the first bottling of our Three Chamber Rye Whiskey and is hand-signed and numbered by Todd Leopold. Only 5,280 bottles of this unique first bottling will ever be produced.
We hope you enjoy this rebirth of an American classic as much as we enjoyed making it.
From our family to yours. --The Leopold Bros.
