Alabama Single Malt — lightly-smoked with pecan and peach wood and aged in small, fifteen-gallon casks.

John Sharp and his son Jimmy ran a business in Montgomery, Alabama. But that business required a lot of travel. When Jimmy’s daughter Lily was born in 2014, they knew they had to start something different. They founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika and named it after John’s father. They make a Rum, Spiced Rum, Gin, Vodka, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey.

John Emerald Alabama Single Malt Whiskey is a true Single Malt made with a Southern flare. The malted barley comes from Ireland and they smoke a portion of the malted grain with peach and pecan wood — like a good Bar-B-Q. The rest of the grain is left dried without smoke. The distilled Spirit is placed into small, fifteen-gallon barrels to foster quicker aging. But they also put in oak chips that have been soaked in Cynthiana Wine — a unique varietal made from Norton grapes. All of this attention to detail creates a stand-out, uniquely Southern-styled American Single Malt.

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.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash 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.

George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
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.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
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.
