Scotchy Scotch Scotch: Holiday Tour, Whiskey + Bottle of ASW Distillery's Scottish-Style Ameireaganach Single Malt Whiskey
Those whiskey ninjas over at ASW Distillery are at it again, releasing their first, Scottish-style single malt, Ameireaganach. Scottish for "American", Ameireaganach rhymes with Harry Connick & this first release (in what will be a series of different single malts) sips like a delicious, fruit-forward Speyside-style single malt whiskey, perfect for the Scotch enthusiast in your life. ASW Distillery has put together this exclusive tour & tasting package for us, just in time for last-minute holiday gifts.
What To Expect
- Five tickets for samples and/or half-cocktails from ASW's whiskey & cocktail collection, including Ameireaganach Single Malt Whiskey, Fiddler Unison Bourbon, Atlanta's 1st rye since Prohibition (Resurgens Rye), 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 & Ameireaganach Single Malt Whiskey, 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 bottle of ASW Distillery's newest release, Ameireaganach Single Malt, a series of rotating single malts that allow ASW to showcase the immense differences in flavor that slight changes in method & material can make. This "Huddled Mashes No. 1" release is the first release in the series.
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 this release of Ameireaganach Single Malt. 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. And now, this delicious whiskey is ready for you.
Georgia's new booze laws that went into effect September 1st couldn't have come at a better time for ASW Distillery, who just celebrated their tasting room's One Year Anniversary. As part of the new laws, ASW Distillery unveiled a righteous new cocktail program that includes some of the best Old Fashioneds, Sazeracs, and Mules (using Atlanta's 18.21 Bitters) in the city, as well as their new Ameireaganach Single Malt Whiskey!
Plus, you'll go home with a bottle of ASW Distillery's Ameireaganach Single Malt Whiskey, the first release in a limited-release series of single malts that allow ASW to showcase the immense differences in flavor that slight changes in method & material can make.
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 120 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 Ameireaganach Single Malt, Duality Double Malt, Fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye, or one of their feature cocktails, including those fine Old Fashioneds, Sazeracs, and Mules 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 cornhole (if they don't have it out, feel free to ask them to get the board out).
