If you’re going to flavor a whiskey, you can do a lot worse than maple syrup. The natural sweetener brings out a host of whiskey flavors while adding a smooth but not overbearing sweetness. It really is a cocktail in a bottle. And Lehigh Valley’s County Seat Spirits is releasing its version on Saturday, October 24th.
They’ve blended their Hidden Copper Bourbon with organic maple syrup to create this fall delight. Bottles are $25 for 375 ml, and quantities are extremely limited. County Seat offers pickup, local delivery and shipping to Pennsylvania addresses.
And at the Easton cocktail and tasting room, you can have the maple bourbon in the pictured Old Fashioned garnished with maple candy floss. Hello fall!
This Friday, October 9th at 5 pm, County Seat Spirits in Easton will be releasing a new spirit. They’re taking their Lock Keeper Gin and aging it in a charred white oak barrel.
Barrel-finished gins are a great way to extend gin season. Often thought of light and crisp, the time in the barrels adds smoky depth to gin and really adds something to cocktails like the negroni.
County Seat’s take on barrel-finished gins is $37 per 750 ml bottle and can be picked up in Easton. Lock Keeper Barrel Finished Gin will also be made available to be shipped or delivered locally.
Wardog Spirits at Black River Farms Vineyard & Winery in Bethlehem, PA released its Peach infused Bourbon this past week. Co-owner Andy Warner tells us that the peach bourbon has already been a big hit and with Labor Day weekend coming up, we imagine it will continue to be a favorite.
The whiskey starts with Wardog’s Black River Bourbon that then has a handmade peach puree blended in. The final product comes in at 70 proof and goes for $42.42 per 750ml bottle.
Wardog Spirits is open Monday through Thursday, from 2 pm to 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 5 pm.
It’s been a quiet start to 2020 in spirit releases. Expect to see that change shortly. In particular at Lehigh Valley’s County Seat Spirits. On Saturday, February 22nd, the distillery is releasing its Maple Rye. It’s their 100% rye whiskey with organic maple syrup added for a smooth and sweet finish. The whiskey is bottled at 85 proof and 375 ml bottles will be available for $25. The release will be available at 1 pm at both County Seat’s Easton location (Simon Silk Mill) and in Allentown (Bridgeworks Enterprise Center).
And that’s not all County Seat has planned for February. On Saturday, February 29th, they will be releasing their latest batch of Beer Barrel Bourbon. This bourbon was aged 17 months in new charred whiskey barrels before being aged for an additional two-plus years in Hijinx Brewing Company’s Dolle Strecken beer barrels. The result is described as giving the whiskey a “smooth and unique malty finish.” The bourbon will be on sale for $42 per 750 ml bottle.
Eight Oaks Farm Distillery is releasing its first ever aged spirit in 750ml bottles. The Aged Rum will be available exclusively at the Christkindlmarkt in Bethlehem, PA. Make plans to visit.
