Though spirit production has slowed for hand sanitizer, the rickhouse is stocked and the next whiskey is ready for release. On June 18, One Eight Distilling of Washington, D.C., will present Untitled Whiskey No. 18 — a special chapter in the distillery’s UNTITLED creative small-batch spirits series.
For the first time, the distillery blended its own grain-to-glass District Made Rye Whiskey with a barrel of the finest 14-year-old high-rye bourbon selected from its rickhouse and bottled it at barrel strength to preserve its complexity of flavor.
The nose on this whiskey leads to notes of rock candy and grapefruit peel. Upon sipping, the complex, earthy notes of leather and walnuts are readily apparent, followed by fruity notes of cherry cola and molasses. The finish is long and warming with hints of rose, cedar and black licorice.
For every case that is collectively pre-ordered, the distillery will donate a gallon of sanitizer – up to 65 gallons – where our communities need it most! Customers select their county and a category (hospitals, EMS, assisted living, food banks and shelters) at checkout and the distillery will announce the results on release day.
Located in Ivy City in Northeast, D.C., the distillery produces about 3,000 gallons of hand sanitizer per week for the D.C. City Government and other organizations serving the frontlines. “We had to stop producing spirits and focus all of our efforts on making hand sanitizer. It’s been quite a big change for the business, but we’re grateful we can find a revenue stream from that, and also that we’re able to stay busy,” says Sandy Wood, Co-Founder and CEO. “We hope you enjoy this special release, a nod to our name, and an exciting exploration into new territories for UNTITLED,” says Alex Laufer, Co-Founder and Head Distiller.
