AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey is our cornerstone contribution to the field of American craft spirits. Starting its life as a porter-style 100% malted barley mash, it’s further shaped by 4-5 day open-air fermentation before passing through our squat head copper pot stills and maturing in heavy toast, No.2 char new oak. Boasting a
bold and definitively complex profile with notes of coffee and chocolate, you won’t mistake it for its Scottish counterparts. It’s a uniquely American product, with an exceptional taste of place. We invite you to take your first sip with an explorer’s state of mind – knowing that this is Deerhammer’s prideful contribution to the newly emerging style that is American single malt whiskey.
Handmade by feel and taste, one single barrel at a time, our whiskey fully conforms to the intentions of the “craft” movement. No computers, fancy controllers or automation — just passionate artisans with a deep love of the whiskey making process and a commitment towards absolute excellence in every single batch.
