Bourbon Whiskey, 'Double Barrel', Fort Hamilton

In August 1775, Alexander Hamilton’s Hearts of Oak militia orchestrated a daring raid on lower Manhattan. Under fire from HMS Asia they seized and repurposed the battery of British cannons, thereafter forming America’s first artillery company. Fort Hamilton Rye Whiskey, from Alex Clark Spirits, is created in the spirit of that revolution.

Tasting Notes

In keeping with Fort Hamilton’s love of rye, Fort Hamilton Double Barrel Bourbon boasts a high-rye mash bill. This cocktail-friendly vatting is comprised of two bourbons; the first is a New York-distilled whiskey made with New York grains in a mash bill of 25% rye, 70% corn, and 5% malted barley. The other bourbon comes from MGP in Indiana. This MGP whiskey, with a mash bill of 36% rye, 60% corn, and 4% malted barley was hand-selected by Fort Hamilton founder, Alex Clark. The combination of these two distillates results in a distinct bourbon with aromas of cardamom, turmeric, and apricot-chocolate bars with green peppercorn and orange zest on the palate. With its high-rye backbone, this bourbon makes an effortless Old Fashioned. Non-chill filtered and 46% ABV.
