Atlanta on the Ryes: Limited Edition Shirt, Tour & 5 Token Whiskey/Cocktail Tasting at ASW Distillery
Atlanta's finest whiskey-makers at ASW Distillery just celebrated their 2 Year Anniversary in style! As part of the celebration, they cooked up limited edition threads as an homage to Atlanta's flight-centric history and continued ascent. Snag one of these limited t-shirts before they're gone, and ohbytheway, enjoy a tour and a tasting of their award-winning whiskies while you're there. Fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye, Duality Double Malt, Tire Fire Heavily Peated Single Malt (starting Sept 22), and much more.
Not yet much of a whiskey drinker? Fear not, as they have a range of delicious cocktails concocted by their Tasting Room Manager, Hallie Stieber (former Beverage Maven at Boccaluppo) -- everything from Mules to their galaxy-renowned 2nd Best Old Fashioneds. So head on over and enjoy an afternoon there. You'll be glad you did.
What To Expect
- Five tickets for samples and/or half-cocktails from ASW's whiskey & cocktail collection, including Fiddler Bourbon (their sweet, smooth wheated bourbon), Resurgens Rye (an Appalachian-Style Rye, smoother and more chocolatey than your traditional rye), Duality Double Malt (the World's 1st Double Malt & Georgia's 1st Ever Double Gold Medal Whiskey), and their "2nd Best Old Fashioned". Note that cocktails are 2 tickets a piece.
- An in-depth tour of ASW's distillery where you'll discover how their Bourbons, Ryes & Malt Whiskies, among others, are made
- A special discount on anything in the ASW store, including whiskey glasses, decanters, and small oak barrels to barrel age your spirits at home
- A limited edition Atlanta on the Ryes t-shirt.
ASW Distillery's Head Distiller Justin Manglitz got his start perfecting his booze-making techniques over 17 years ago. While owning Athens' homebrew supply store for nearly a decade (with customers like Wild Heaven's brewmaster), he spent over 7 years perfecting the recipe for what came to be ASW's first Single Malt Whiskey, Ameireaganach. The perfected whiskey served as his "liquid resume" when he first joined ASW Distillery as Head Distiller over 4 years ago to help with the distillery's build-out. Since then, he and the ASW team have gone on to release Silver, Gold, and Double Gold-medal winning whiskies, with a goal of helping put Atlanta on the map for craft distilling, similar to how our awesome craft breweries have done the last decade for beer.
Here's your chance to go behind the scenes and learn how ASW crafts all this good stuff with our exclusive distillery tour and tasting. You'll learn about their distillation process, getting a peek at their 15-foot-tall Scottish-style copper pot stills that were custom-made for ASW Distillery by Kentucky's Vendome Copper and Brass Works. You'll also get a walk through ASW's rickhouse, which is home to over 400 barrels of whiskey being aged to perfection.
And then onto the good stuff: the tour concludes with five tickets for tastings or half-cocktails (plus more available for purchase, if you're in the groove), where you can choose from Duality Double Malt, Fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye, many other whiskies & brandies they distill right here in Atlanta, or one of their feature cocktails, including those fine Old Fashioneds we mentioned.
Enjoy your libations at their impressive brushed walnut bar, relax in a leather armchair in their lounge area, or savor your sips while enjoying a game of tiny Jenga or tic-tac-toe.
