A deeply complex and full-flavored Whiskey blend finished with staves of rare Spanish Amontillado.

Infuse Spirits is aptly named. Seth Benhaim started infusing Spirits in his garage in 2012 at the age of twenty-five — becoming the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-In-Show and Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. He’s our kind of guy.

While Infuse Spirits Vodkas and Bitters are infused with natural spices and fruits, their Whiskies are infused with staves from other barrels of a variety of wood types — from Whiskey and Sherry to Wine, Single Malt, and more. They even use exotic woods like Mizunara and French oak. This is how they named their “Broken Barrel” line of Whiskies.

One of the latest editions in the Broken Barrel line is a limited edition blend of 12-year-old American Whiskey from Indiana and 5-year-old corn Whiskey from Kentucky. After marrying, the Spirit is finished in casks with staves from fine Amontillado casks. The influence of those ancient staves permeates the aroma and palate with notes of exotic woods and deep earthy notes that border on umami. And since this limited edition is bottled at 55% ABV, you will savor every nuance. The bottle design must be mentioned, featuring custom art by Joshua Zingerman and inspired by the classic Edger Allan Poe story.

Smartass Corner:
“The Cask of Amontillado” is a short story written by the famous Gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe in which the offended Montresor lures the intoxicated Fortunato into the catacombs to murder him by promising a taste from a rare cask of fine Spanish Amontillado Wine.

is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
