US distillery creates ‘first’ coffee bean-rested BourbonBy Melita Kiely
The Stillhouse Spirits Company has created the ‘first’ Bourbon rested in roasted small-batch coffee beans, which will go on sale later this month.
Stillhouse Black Bourbon has been matured in new American oak barrels before being filtered through charcoal, then rested and mellowed in small-batch coffee beans.
The whiskey is described as having aromas of caramel and coffee, a balanced body on the palate and a smooth finish.
Bottled at 40% abv, Stillhouse Black Bourbon is packaged in a matte black can with a heavy duty steel cap.
It will be available in select US markets in either 750ml or 375ml cans for an RRP of US$29.95 and US$19.95 respectively.
Brad Beckerman founded the Stillhouse Spirits Co in 2016 and was later joined by investing partner and co-creative director G-Eazy, a multi-platinum rapper and producer.
G-Eazy said: “Working closely with Brad and the Stillhouse team has been such a dope experience, and as a whiskey enthusiast I’m excited to introduce Stillhouse Black Bourbon.
“If there’s one thing I love as much as Bourbon it’s coffee, and I can confidently say that our Bourbon is unlike anything else on the planet, we have reinvented the idea of what Bourbon should be and I can’t wait for all of my fellow Bourbon drinkers to experience it.”
