North Carolina artisan distillery Chemist Spirits has collaborated with Biltmore Estate to release its inaugural Biltmore Single Malt Whiskey.
Handcrafted with estate-grown Calypso barley aged in new oak barrels, the elegant rose-gold tinted expression is further finished in Biltmore Sangiovese barrels before being bottled at 47% ABV.
“Biltmore single malt whiskey is an heirloom-quality whiskey with an artful flavour profile that is smooth yet complex. This hand-crafted whiskey is designed to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail,” said Debbie Word, founder, owner and distiller at Chemist Spirits.
Biltmore Single malt Whiskey is dominated on the nose by butterscotch and caramelized sugar with notes of maple syrup, pralines, candied pecans, dates, and syrupy stewed plums.
On the palate, delicate spices beautifully integrate with the soft fruits, dried apricots, honey, and vanilla sugar and a sweet smooth creaminess which is complemented with hints of butterscotch and cherry syrup, with lingering fine-ground pepper and polished oak on the finish.
“Biltmore is thrilled to come together again with Chemist Spirits to introduce Biltmore single malt whiskey, which is created for whiskey connoisseurs and collectors alike,” said Heather Jordan, Director of Marketing, Biltmore Wine Company. “The care that Chemist Spirits take into crafting exceptional products mirrors Biltmore’s commitment to excellence.”
Chemist Spirits was created to honour the real-life chemists and pharmacists who kept distilling alive during Prohibition.
