Beat Single Malt Whiskey From New Hampshire Wows! (NH)
Beat Single Malt Whiskey 50% ABV (100 proof) is a small batch, small barrel whiskey made by Djinn Spirits. Djinn Spirits (pronounced "gin" spirits) is a craft distillery located in Nashua, New Hampshire. It was established in December of 2013 by Andy and Cindy Harthcock. Djinn was an instant hit with their gin, and followed up with a series of white and aged whiskies. Andy and Cindy were thrilled to release the first single malt whiskey in the state’s history. Micro-batch fermentation, double distilled, and aged in small 15-gallon high-char oak barrels resulted a very smooth, spicy new spirit. The first bottling was very small, and available only at the distillery tasting room. But it can now be found on the shelves of small stores and of course, the New Hampshire state store! A fantastic whiskey with lots of cognac and orange rind notes, molasses, caramel, and oatmeal.
