White Pike Whiskey

How White Pike Was Born
- White Pike mixes in ways brown whiskeys won’t
- Farming, distillation and bottling all done locally
- When we bottle it, we ship it straight away
- Ingredients: organic spelt, corn, malted wheat
- Family-owned distillery, Alabama-trained Master Distiller
- No commercial enzymes are used because malted wheat gets the job done better
- Nose: Smells like harvest time in a creamy cornfield
- Taste: Calls to mind fresh buttered toast, rich in the middle and smooth as silk stockings
- Finish: Very clean, integrated
- Overall: Good for a mixer, or a little nip with a taste of water behind it—just the way we like
- White Pike Whiskey is the alcoholic child of Mother Industries, a New York based creative company, determined to make good stuff and have fun doing it.
- A couple of years ago Mother got excited by the idea of creating a highly mixable, white whiskey and by the emerging culture of craft distilleries.
- They found the best possible partners to make this a reality: Thomas McKenzie and Brian McKenzie of Finger Lakes Distilling.
- Two years later, after countless rounds and tireless efforts and wisdom of the distillers, Mother and Finger Lakes crafted something they hope people will appreciate and love, White Pike Whiskey.
