Looking for a great Valentine's Day gift for the spirits lover in your life? Spirit Hound Distillers' Colorado Honey Whisky is the perfect fit.
For its Colorado Honey Whisky, Spirit Hound Distillers and Colorado-based Bee Squared Apiaries collaborated to create a unique process where raw honey is aged in spent whisky barrels for 100 days. Each honey-filled barrel was rotated daily, by hand, to maximize absorption of whisky and oak essence, producing a very limited release Whisky Barrel Aged Honey.
The emptied honey barrel then returned to Spirit Hound, where it was filled with a finished (2 year old) whisky and aged for three additional months. Each unique barrel is individually bottled with a delightfully balanced, rich, not-too-sweet whisky that showcases the true depth of this Colorado collaboration. Suggested Retail Price is $65.
Resonating from the gritty small town of Lyons, Colo., in the Rocky Mountain foothills, Spirit Hound's Honey Whisky is a craft spirit years in the making. Spirit Hound’s reputation originates in their hands-on approach to the craft. Taking traditional and classic recipes realized with local, hand-selected ingredients and distilled through hand-built-from-scratch stills and distillation equipment in search of unique, one-of-a-kind processes and flavors.
Please let us know if we can connect you to Spirit Hound's co-founder and head distiller Craig Englehorn for more information on this unique Honey Whisky.
