Adrift Distillers Triticale Whiskey begins its journey in Washington’s lush Skagit Valley, with seed tended to by MJW Grain, the fifth generation of farmers on the land. The heirloom grain Triticale, perfectly suited to the Washington climate, is harvested and then custom-malted by specialists at Skagit Valley Malting, to coax all the caramel sweetness and nutty complexity from its kernels. The raw grain and its two malted varieties are carefully mashed, fermented and triple distilled in our home on the Pacific ocean, then matured in American oak casks. This end result is a deep amber whiskey with notes of heavy oak, vanilla, and brown sugar on the nose. The first sip reveals depths of vanilla, marshmallow, cherry fruit and cedar with a subtle note of tobacco in the finish.
