ASM 101 SERIES

ASM 101 SERIES

Are you interested in learning more about the fundamentals of whisk(e)y and the whiskey making process? If yes; the #WanderbackLive 101 Education Series is for you.

Wanderback and That’s Neat podcast team have joined forces up to bring you four interactive education sessions broadcast live on youTube.

American single malt (ASM) is a relatively new category of whiskey . There is excitement and sometimes confusion as to its place on the world whiskey scene.

In this session, you will learn the official differences between ASM and other American and world whiskeys and how to taste the differences on your palate. Discover why Wanderback focuses on ASM and join the debate on the push for ASM to be an official American whiskey category in its own right.

The single ingredient of American single malt, malted barley, comes in many forms. Discover the different ways in which barley is malted, how they lend different flavor profiles, and how the craft malt industry is growing in the PNW.

We’ll also discuss growing barley at the Wanderback Farm in Hood River and our current and future estate grown grain-to-glass collaborations.

The overarching process for making single malt whiskey is consistent, but different distillery equipment and processes can impact final taste.

In this session we first learn about the science behind making whiskey. Next, we explore different Wanderback partner distilleries to understand what makes each unique and interesting.

About Wanderback Whiskey Co.

Wanderback produces hand-crafted, limited edition American single malt whiskeys in Hood River, Oregon. Instead of making a flagship whiskey and reproducing the same taste over and over, we prefer to explore endless possibilities of bold American whiskeys through partnerships.

Once distilled, their whiskey is transported to the family Farm in Hood River, Oregon for aging. Barrel selection is a deep passion and exploring unique cask types allows the whiskey to unveil its final and fullest expression. This process gives Wanderback the freedom to interpret endless iterations of limited edition American single malt whiskeys. We invite you to explore our collections.
