In every drop of Iron Smoke Whiskey there's a story of expertise and craftsmanship at the highest level. Any great story has to start somewhere, and ours begins on local, family-owned farms. Generations of farming experience ensure that every batch of Iron Smoke is crafted from the very best grain. Next we begin our apple wood smoking process, which gives our whiskey its unique and unforgettable character. With the raw materials sourced and smoked, the attention turns to the production process.
With the distillation complete, the raw spirits are left to age to perfection in triple charred virgin American white oak barrels. As each season passes by, the whiskey will develop even more complex flavors and gain its iconic amber coloring. Throughout the aging process, we sample each barrel to monitor its progress and select only the best to become Iron Smoke. Our story is all in the details and we hope it will make a great addition to your story as well.
Whole grain is finely milled and mashed to convert its starch into fermentable sugars. After a few days of fermentation, the distillation process begins. The distiller keeps a watchful eye over our copper pot still to be sure that only the highest-quality spirits are selected for aging; ever the perfectionist, each batch is distilled at least twice to purify their flavors further.
Iron Smoke is sweet to the nose with a unique smooth full-bodied flavor with the rich deepness of oak throughout the pallet and a subtle warm apple wood smoke finish.
