Founding Father’s Day with William Whipple

In the Spring of 2017, we released our second aged whiskey: William Whipple’s Winter Wheat. The name honors William Whipple, the representative from New Hampshire who signed the Declaration of Independence. Whipple was not only an important figure in the state’s history but also the son of a maltster — an auspicious origin for this whiskey’s namesake.

To may homage to our founding father’s, as well as the ones who played a part in raising us, we’re stocking our shelves with this whimsical Winter Wheat Whiskey for Father’s Day.

This particular mash is composed of 75 percent organic red wheat, 5 percent caramel wheat, 5 percent chocolate wheat and 15 percent malted barley. We offer this spirit in both unaged and aged varieties. The latter being aged for two years in 53-gallon, No. 3 charred white oak barrels. Stock is very limited, as only 250 bottles were made, and very few remain.

As we say here at Tamworth Distilling, “Waste not, want not.” So we gave our barrels to our friends at Lucas Roasting Company to create a different kind of brew: William Whipple’s Whiskey Age Coffee Beans!

The folks at Lucas Roasting Company aged Brazil Bobolink beans for 7 weeks in the delightful aromas of William Whipple Winter Wheat Whiskey barrels, which aged our whiskey for 2 years.

You can pick up a bag at Tamworth Distilling & Mercantile in New Hampshire or at the Art in the Age store in Philadelphia. You can also buy these limited edition beans straight from the source online HERE.

And for those who like to have their brew and whiskey too, try a Whipple Creamed Coffee: 2 oz William Whipple’s Winter Wheat Whiskey, 1 cup of freshly brewed William Whipple’s Brazil Bobolink Beans, top with heavy cream, serve over ice
