Barrel Hitch is an american whiskey bottled at 80 proof - The brainchild of two professional women with a passion for spirits, Master Distiller Mel Heim and Chief Branding Officer Carrie Earles, Barrel Hitch American Whiskey embodies the idea that all whiskey is not created equal. Whiskey is a complex, layered spirit that does not need embellishing for the sake of inclusion. What is more tempting than brown sugar and vanilla? Buttery oak and a silky body? Barrel Hitch was created with one goal in mind: Let’s make a whiskey for everyone. Bottled at 80 proof, Barrel Hitch American Whiskey hits the mark with a smooth body and notes of toasted oak, green apple and vanilla. This remarkable profile is the result of a meticulous blending process of numerous finished whiskey sources. This step is a crucial part of exacting the whiskey as every barrel contributes a unique scent, flavor, mouth feel and color that ultimately must be balanced for consistency and quality. This approachable spirit is a shining example of how science and art, when properly executed, form a harmonious union that redefines the standard.
