The Rise of American Whiskey

Just like all craft spirits, the interest in American Whiskey has grown exponentially over the last few years. “Bourbanism,” as it’s called by insiders, boomed in 2016 and 2017, with more growth expected in 2018.

If you’ve just started getting into whiskey and are trying to figure out the differences in mash bill, type, aging process, etc., then you’re not alone.

At Tricky Fish, we get a lot of questions about what we call sippin’ whiskey, and the good news is that we already did all the heavy lifting for you. Our team has hand selected our favorites for you to try and enjoy. Have questions about any of them? We can answer those too. Here are a few customer favorites we often recommend:

Basil Hayden’s

Looking for something smooth to sink your teeth into? Basil Hayden’s believes their whiskey will leave an impression on you, whether it’s your first sip ever – or the first sip of the night. What makes Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey different is the high rye mashbill, a blend of rye and corn that lends itself to a sweet and spicy whiskey you can’t go wrong with.

Angel’s Envy Finished Rye

Want to try something new and complex? Chances are, you haven’t had Angel’s Envy Finished Rye yet. This rye whiskey is different than others because it is finished in Caribbean rum casks, giving the whiskey a whole new flavor profile. It’s earthy, raw, and sweet – all at the same time – and we’re pretty sure you’ll love it.

Firestone & Robertson TX Blended Whiskey

Looking for a local craft whiskey? Firestone & Robertson’s TX Blended Whiskey – or just “TX” for short – was created out of what the founders saw as a gap in the market. Sure, there were many Canadian, Scottish, and Irish blended whiskies that tasted great, but where were the American blends? After many attempts at trial and error, the award-winning TX was born.
