Driggs, Idaho-based Grand Teton Distillery announced the release of its first whiskey in a new series—Grand Teton Private Stock Straight Corn Whiskey. Grand Teton’s Private Stock Whiskies are limited release barrels that have been individually selected, proofed with pure mountain water and hand-bottled.
Distilled entirely from local Idaho corn, this premium whiskey has been aged for six and a half years in used American white oak Colter’s Run bourbon barrels. Bottled from true single barrels, only nine barrels of this limited edition spirit will be released. The launch of this bottle further commemorates the distillery’s 10th anniversary.
“We’re thrilled to share this special whiskey as we mark our 10 year anniversary,” said John Boczar, head distiller at Grand Teton Distillery, in a press release. “The taste has exceeded our expectations and we’re looking forward to sharing it along with future Private Stock whiskies with whiskey lovers, collectors and those looking for something that really lets our craft shine.”
With aromas of oak, maple and clove, the whiskey has a golden raisin taste. Its creamy, medium-bodied finish has notes of cinnamon and butter. A long, warming, rich and rounded whiskey, Grand Teton’s Straight Corn Whiskey is best served neat. This grain-to-glass spirit is the first whiskey Grand Teton Distillery milled and distilled and is currently its longest-aged spirit.
Each bottle is hand-numbered with both barrel and bottle numbers and is sold in an embossed gift box.
