In collaboration with Rivertowne Brewing, Wigle Whiskey is debuting a new spirit: Rivers and Mountains. Rivers and Mountains is the newest release in the Brewers Series. Rivertowne Brewing supplied a brew using a unique style of brewing with a wild-type yeast strain. The resulting taste has notes of sour cherry, rye pepper and vanilla.
The spirit is then distilled twice and fermented using the Brettanomyces yeast strain, specifically made for Wigle just so they could work with Brettanomyces-fermented beers.
This spirit is being released on Friday, August 10th at Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse and Whiskey Garden. Festivities begin at 5 PM with the official release. Live music will be provided by Swiss Army, food truck Edgar’s Best Taco will be available and will also have brewer John
Faust Jr from Rivertowne Brewing will be on hand to answer questions and sample beer. Wigle will also be offering a special wild cider from Threadbare Cider & Mead.
The Rivers and Mountains release party is free to attend, however, Wigle encourages you to purchase a passport for $20 that will include a complimentary tasting of Rivers and Mountains, two cocktails from the bar and a pour of Rivertowne Beer or Threadbare Cider.
