Iron Smoke's company mascot is a skeleton named “Skully.”
Established in 2018 the distillery’s Watering Room has a full-fledged bar showcasing everything from “Iron Smoke Whiskeys, Bourbons and Elixirs, to hooch, giggle juice, anti-freezes and grandma’s cough remedies.
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.
