Dogfish Head Alternate Takes Whiskey

Jan 10, 2019

Category: Vices

While most folks have probably heard of Dogfish Head’s beers — they were, after all, pioneers of the craft movement — you might not realize they’ve also got a distilling arm that’s been making spirits (on a small scale) since 2002. Their reach is about to get a bit wider, however, as they’ve announced that they’ve started bottling their very first whiskey, called Alternate Takes: Volume 1.

Made entirely at their brand-new, state-of-the-art distillery in Milton, Delaware, this music-inspired whiskey was actually aged in charred American oak barrels and finished in casks that previously contained the brand’s own Barrel Honey Rum. The resulting spirit is complex, medium-bodied, and smooth — to be enjoyed either in a classic cocktail, on the rocks, or neat. For now, it’s only being distributed to Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C at a price of $45 a bottle. We just hope they opt for a wider release, so the rest of us can get our hands on some.

Purchase: $45
