Whiskeysmith, which came out of the Old Elk Distillery in Fort Collins, Colorado, recently launched a new line of flavored whiskeys across the United States.

The company said these flavored whiskies are made with a backbone of real American whiskey and natural flavors. The flavors range from chocolate, banana, pineapple, blood orange, salted caramel, peach and coconut.

“We are founded in flavor and find comfort in our craft,” says Melinda Maddox, Beverage Director of Whiskeysmith, in a prepared statement. “Our platform for flavor ideation, combined with handcrafted American whiskey, creates a product that is really unique in the whiskey category. Our line of Whiskeysmith Flavored Whiskeys offers something for every palate.”

The Whiskeysmith team noted their line of whiskeys can be enjoyed neat or as additions to cocktails. There are also what’s described as plenty of innovative options to create delicious takes on classic cocktails.

“Just add two dashes of your favorite bitters to two ounces of Whiskeysmith Blood Orange and voilà! You have yourself an Old Fashioned,” Maddox said.

The new line of original flavored whiskeys are said to have been carefully selected to capture the whiskey flavor and the added flavors. Whiskeysmith Co. Flavored whiskies join the Old Elk Distillery’s range, including Old Elk Bourbon, Dry Town Gin and Nooku Bourbon Cream.

Old Elk, for those unfamiliar with it, was founded in 2013 by serial entrepreneur Curt Richardson. Today, legendary master distiller Greg Metze leads production there.
