Experience Westward American Single Malt Whiskey
Elegant, robust, and fruity, with creamy vanilla and brown sugar notes. Flavors include baking spice, lush fruit, and sweet malt, with a tobacco, dark chocolate, and leather finish.
Enjoy this neat, on the rocks, or in an Old-Fashioned. For something a bit more unusual, pair with an Islay scotch and whip up that modern classic, The Penicillin.

Westward American Single Malt Production Notes
It start with the brewing of an artisanal American Ale from scratch, made from locally malted barley, ale yeast, and fermented at a slow, low temperature. This is then distilled twice in custom-designed low-reflux pot stills, transforming the fresh flavorful ale into whiskey. That whiskey is matured to perfection in new, lightly charred American Oak barrels selected to accentuate the bold characteristics of Westward's whiskey. Finally, the barrels are mingled in small batches to achieve Westward American Single Malt's signature flavor profile - balanced and bold.
