On Friday, November 27th, Triple Sun Spirits is releasing their Pennsylvania Straight Bourbon. Distilled from a sweet mash of 80% corn, 10% rye and 10% barley, the bourbon is then aged for a minimum of two years in Kentucky oak barrels.
Reserve your bottle of the limited release today. 375 ml bottles are $38 each. Pickup will be available starting on Black Friday.
The single barrel release is described as “offering notes of caramel, vanilla and honey that blend with light spice, tobacco leaf and oakiness.”
When ordering, choose from any of Triple Sun’s three locations including Emmaus, Doylestown or Newtown.
Triple Sun Spirits throws open the doors at a new tasting room in Doylestown. The location is in the Mercantile, a collaborative marketplace made up of artists, shops and restaurants in the Doylestown Shopping Center at 444 Main Street.
It’s the third location for Triple Sun, which also has another tasting room in Newtown and distillery and tasting room in Emmaus.
Triple Sun Spirits with locations in Emmaus and Newtown, released a Spiced Rum this past weekend. The rum is made from Caribbean sourced molasses and conditioned in American oak. The black rum is then enhanced with a cinnamon-free maceration featuring Triple Sun’s blend of Madagascar vanilla, orange peel, crushed nutmeg, whole clove, cardamom, peppercorn and star anise.
The Newtown location will have pizza and barbecue this weekend in case you need more motivation to leave your couch to pick up a $39 bottle.
The spiced rum is also being featured in these cocktails at the Newtown tasting room:
- Frozen Coconut: Lime, coconut, pineapple and spiced rum
- The Spiced Grapefruit: Ginger beer, grapefruit juice, spiced rum and smoked rosemary
