There once was a man from Nantucket… who made the insane decision to distill single malt whiskey.

“Notch, as in “not Scotch, but rather single malt whisky from Nantucket,” is a new world whisky distilled from pure island glacial water. Cisco Brewers develops the whisky wash by producing a young beer made from Maris Otter malt; the wash is then transferred to the Triple Eight Distillery, where the alcohol is heated in a small copper pot still. The heart of this pure distillate is captured and racked in ex-bourbon barrels from the makers of Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve and Buffalo Trace. The fresh distillate is then laid to rest in the bonded warehouse for 8 years.”

Connection with the excellent Cisco Brewers is a positive.

It appears bottles cost $888. Order here.
