Our current batch of Hopped Whiskey is a blend of two distinct whiskies; one with Cascade hops and the other one using Nugget hops. We vapor infused our whiskey with 15 pounds of locally grown hops and added another 20 pounds of hops to the low wines before the final distillation.
One challenge in making a hopped whiskey is incorporating the flavor of hops without making the product overwhelmingly bitter. This layered production process yields a whiskey with the citrus and floral qualities we love from hop flowers without the bitterness you might expect from an IPA.
Perfect neat, over ice, or in cocktails. Try out the Whiskey Sour below. It’s deliciously hoppy.
2 oz Hopped Whiskey
¾ oz fresh lemon juice
¾ oz simple syrup
orange wheel to garnish
maraschino cherry to garnish
Stir or shake all ingredients with ice and strain onto new ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with the orange wheel and cherry!
