Maine’s Wiggly Bridge Distillery has released its New England Single Malt Whisky, the newest expression in the distillery’s portfolio of handcrafted spirits.
A statement from Wiggly Bridge explains that this release has been seven years in the making.
“We are very pleased with the results to date and waited until we were satisfied with the aging process,” said David Woods, owner and founder of the brand. “I hoped in the beginning that a five-year product would hit the mark, but we have found patience always pays virtues. And after seven years of making this product, we are now able to release it. It was worth the wait.”
The distiller explained that this New England single malt is made from 100% malted barley. It’s an unpeated single malt that’s made with heirloom Scottish whisky yeast.
Woods said that Wiggly Bridge Distillery does things “the old fashioned way, in care and craft,” and they wanted to pay homage to single malt Scotch whiskies with this expression.
“My son and I have always been a fan of whiskies and have always leaned towards bourbon,” Woods said. “We wanted to make something again that was different from the norm. We believe we have reached that level of success with our new New England Single Malt Whisky.”
The barley is grown in northern Maine and floor malted at Blue Ox in Lisbon Falls, Maine. It’s then cooked, fermented, distilled and barrel aged at Wiggly Bridge Distillery in Southern Maine.
Wiggly Bridge’s New England Single Malt Whisky is available for purchase for $89.99 exclusively at the Wiggly Bridge Distillery Barn in York, Maine.
