All about Iron Smoke distillery
Iron Smoke Distillery
is a craft distillery situated in Upstate New York, just off of Main Street, in a craft distilling community where they grow a lot of apples
Naturally, this local crop has an impact on the Spirits produced in this area, and Iron Smoke product is a prime example
Currently, the distillery produces four core products in the Iron Smoke family — Iron Smoke Straight Bourbon Whiskey
, Iron Smoke Casket Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey
, Rattlesnake Rosie’s Apple Pie Whiske
y, and Rattlesnake Rosie's Maple Bacon Whiskey
Iron Smoke distillery was founded in 2011
by musician Tommy Brunett
along with partners Ron Kirshner
and Steve Brown
. What started off as experimenting
in Brunett’s backyard with corn Whiskey
and charred apple chunks, ended with the Iron Smoke Spirit that is known today.
Fast-forward to a few years later, and the Iron Smoke facility is now home to a 30-foot smoker
, boasting 70 tons of grain storage in their grain silos (affectionately dubbed “Whiskey missiles”) within the former American Can Factory.
Generations of local, family-owned
farming experience ensure every batch of Iron Smoke is crafted from the highest quality grain
Their applewood smoking process gives their Whiskey its unforgettable character
. After a few days of fermentation, the mash is twice distilled through copper pot stills, ensuring a high-quality
, pure Spirit.
The raw Spirit is left to age in triple charred virgin
American white oak barrels, imparting deep complex flavors onto the Whiskey.
