LAUNCHED May 2019: Nashville Craft Original Bourbon Whisk(e)y
Nashville Craft's new made-from-scratch wheated bourbon (60% corn, 30% wheat, 10% malted barley) is the first whiskey launched on the Nashville Craft label. The first barrel rolled out in a limited release of signed, numbered 750ml bottles on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
As with all of our products, Nashville Craft Original Bourbon Whisk(e)y is distilled and bottled at Nashville Craft, handmade by our distilling team: founder and scientist-turned-distiller Bruce Boeko and distiller/certified executive bourbon steward Rachael Sykes. It is available in 750ml only in our tasting room.
NEW: Golden Biscuit Sorghum Spirit
First came Naked Biscuit Sorghum Spirit. Now our inaugural craft creation is available in a barrel-aged version: Golden Biscuit Sorghum Spirit.
This new, limited release has all the qualities that we love about our first launch – only older and wiser. We took Naked Biscuit – produced using 100 percent pure sorghum syrup from Tennessee’s Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill – and aged it in bourbon barrels. Expect heightened depth and complexity with vanilla cake batter on the nose. It’s smooth on the pallet with subtle hints of oak. There’s nothing else quite like it.
Golden Biscuit continues our tie to local sourcing: Sweet sorghum cane is well adapted to our state’s climate, making it an ideal ingredient to ferment and distill into delicious, locally sourced specialty spirits. For decades, Muddy Pond’s Guenther family business has kept up with the growing demand for sorghum syrup, which is commonly served over biscuits. We’re proud to carry Muddy Pond’s traditions into our tasting room and our bottles.
Golden Biscuit is a small-batch, handcrafted taste of Tennessee available in 750ml only in our tasting room.
Naked biscuit sorghum spirit
Don’t worry -- you’ll still have syrup for breakfast. But we’ve taken barrels of sorghum to distill for our first Nashville Craft product: Naked Biscuit Sorghum Spirit.
Sweet sorghum cane has been grown in Tennessee for generations. Unlike sugar cane, it is well adapted to our state’s climate, making it an ideal ingredient to ferment and distill into a delicious, locally sourced specialty spirit. Our inaugural batches are produced using 100 percent pure sorghum syrup from Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill, in the Tennessee hills midway between Nashville and Knoxville. For decades, the Guenther family business has kept up with the growing demand for sorghum syrup; Muddy Pond offers other products including barbecue sauce and honey. We’re proud to carry their products in our tasting room and to turn their sorghum into spirits.
Naked Biscuit is available in 750ml and 375ml in our tasting room.
Crane City Gin
Nashville is booming. As we drive to our distillery for work, we take in a city skyline that has been transformed in recent years with new high rises and the cranes that help build them. The name of Nashville Craft's hand-crafted gin is a nod to our city's historic progress.
Unlike many gins, ours is made from scratch, starting with wheat and malted barley. Then we infuse our base spirit with seven botanicals and hand-distill it in our 250-gallon Vendome copper pot still. Here's a toast to Nashville with our hand-crafted gin, right here in Nashville's vibrant Wedgwood-Houston neighborhood.
Crane City Gin is available in 750ml and 375ml in our tasting room.
Nashville Honey Spiced Honey Liqueur
Music City is abuzz - hot even. Our Nashville Honey Spiced Honey Liqueur tastes just like that. Hand distilled from cane sugar and honey, this small-batch craft spirit is infused with natural ginger, cardamom, lemon peel, and cinnamon. It's a little sweet, a little spicy. Nashville Craft's newest launch, Nashville Honey is available in 750ml and 375ml in our tasting room.
