We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we believe whiskey is best enjoyed neat. Simple. Elegant. No fuss. But! That doesn’t mean that good whiskey cocktails are banned from our list. A classic Old Fashioned is never a bad place to start, as this is often our go-to.

In 2019 for Batch No. 3, we are switching to SLOW DILUTION. Instead of diluting the cask proof whiskey just prior to blending, we will be diluting it down in the barrel 1-2 proof a month. It will be fully diluted, from 120 proof to bottle proof, right on time for bottling this Fall and and are excited to note its impact in the final taste.

Whether it’s packing for an adventure in the woods or a casual evening at the Farm with friends, we consistently find ourselves reaching for a bottle of Batch No. 1. There’s a warmth to our first American single malt that truly makes it the perfect sipping whiskey. And coincidence or not, the consensus is that its rich, smoky finish makes it the ultimate companion to a nice piece of dark chocolate, good company and a campfire.

Newcomers to our whiskey, and American single malt in general, often ask: Which Batch of Wanderback should I try first? American Single Malt (or ASM) is a relatively new category in the world of spirits and the Pacific Northwest is just beginning to scratch the surface on the abundance it holds. At the forefront of that movement are single malt whiskey producers like Wanderback.
