When the temperature drops, it’s time to switch from south of the border mixed drinks to spicy American whiskeys. Here are three Wildwood recommends, that you’ve probably never heard of!
This unaged corn whiskey is a real treat and incredibly surprising. Four times distilled in Virginia, Moonshine is bready with notes of spicy red hot cinnamon and charred corn. It is an excellent substitute for vodka in a lot of cocktails, perfect for sipping and shooting, but really shines with sweet iced tea and lemon.
Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye
This barrel proof rye is not for the faint of heart. Coming in at over 60% alcohol, this whopper is peppery and hot but surprisingly drinkable. Enjoy with a handful of cubes.
Pritchard’s Double Barrel Tennessee Bourbon
Most whiskeys spend time in oak to earn their characteristic golden color and are then blended and cut with water to bring down alcohol content. The genius of this producer’s signature bourbon is that it is then placed back into oak for another few years at drinking proof to improve and enrich its caramel and vanilla notes - a perfect dessert bourbon!
Come sip these tipples and all your favorite American Whiskeys each night at Wildwood Barbeque on Park Avenue South at 18th St.
