Chemist Spirits Unveils Its First Craft Single Malt Whiskey In Collaboration with Biltmore
Chemist Spirits, an artisan Prohibition-era distillery located in the heart of downtown Asheville, has released its inaugural Biltmore Single Malt Whiskey, signaling the next tradition in Chemist's longstanding partnership with Biltmore.
Hand crafted with estate-grown Calypso barley aged in new oak barrels and finished in Biltmore Sangiovese barrels for a perfectly balanced flavor profile, Biltmore Single Malt Whiskey captures the timeless elegance of America's finest and most legendary estate.
"Biltmore single malt whiskey is an heirloom-quality whiskey with an artful flavor profile that is smooth yet complex. This hand-crafted whiskey is designed to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail," said Debbie Word, founder, owner and distiller at Chemist Spirits. "The collaborative expressions we've released with Biltmore to date, including our best-selling Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin, demonstrate a strong creative partnership and a shared dedication to exceptional craftsmanship and quality."
The elegant rose-gold tint of Biltmore single malt whiskey provides a visual hint of its heavy red wine barrel influence. It is dominated on the nose by butterscotch and caramelized sugar with notes of maple syrup, pralines, candied pecans, dates, and syrupy stewed plums. The delicate spices beautifully integrate with the soft fruits, dried apricots, honey, and vanilla sugar and a sweet smooth creaminess which is complemented with hints of butterscotch and cherry syrup, with lingering fine-ground pepper and polished oak on the finish.
"Biltmore is thrilled to come together again with Chemist Spirits to introduce Biltmore single malt whiskey, which is created for whiskey connoisseurs and collectors alike," said Heather Jordan, Director of Marketing, Biltmore Wine Company. "The care that Chemist Spirits takes into crafting exceptional products, including the annual release of Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin and now this limited-edition single malt whiskey, mirrors Biltmore's commitment to excellence. We're excited to give consumers another taste of our award-winning collaboration."
The inaugural Biltmore Single Malt Whiskey release is presented at 47% ABV and offered at $90. A limited number of cases will be available through and online at chemistspirits.com/Biltmore-single-malt.
