Our whiskey is made from Hard Red Winter Wheat grown on our parents farm in Kansas. We age it a minimum of 2 years in 53 gallon barrels and do not blend so that each barrel imparts it's own unique flavor characterstics to each batch. This whiskey has hits of peppery bite up front with a sweet vanilla finish and a fading after taste of cinnamon. Very smooth to drink either neat or on the rocks.
The non-gmo wheat we use is grown on our parents farm in central Kansas that has been in the family since 1876. Kansas sits on a bedrock of limestone so there is a natural leaching of the minerals imparted into the wheat itself that shows in how smooth our finished whiskey tastes.
We try to keep it simple by letting the natural flavors of the barrel and grain shine thru. We add nothing to our process (no additives or artificial flavorings) when crafting our whiskey.
Drift Distillery manufactures quality small batch spirits that are all hand made in San Clemente, CA. One of the most unique aspects of Drift is the grain to bottle operation that they get their wheat from their parents' family farm outside the town of Bison, Kansas. We take a lot of pride in the fact that we’re able to make premium spirits that we love with the grain planted and harvested by our parents. Not many distilleries can say that. Even our tasting room reflects our roots as all the tin and wood come from a 100 year old barn from the farm and definitely makes our tasting room one of a kind.
TASTING Hits of peppery bite up front with a sweet vanilla finish and a fading after taste of cinnamon. Very smooth to drink either neat or on the rocks or if feeling frisky it also make's a heck of an old fashioned.
AROMA Caramel with hints of oak and brown sugar. A slight bakery sweetness as well.
