custom-whiskey

Have you ever wanted your own whiskey? Like, a lot of your own whiskey? Thanks to Mississippi River Distilling Company, your boozy dreams have come true. With “My Whiskey” the company’s custom whiskey program, you can create and enjoy your very own blend. Working with the guys over there (you don’t need to travel, you can do it all by phone or email), you’ll select the grain bill, the yeast, the barrel, the age, the proof, and the name of your very own whiskey. When it’s done, you get the barrel and its delicious contents. At 80 proof, that comes out to 160 bottles of your very own stock (about $38 a bottle). Your home bar will be loaded for some time to come.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
