Del Bac Classic Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Del Bac Classic Whiskey

Arroyo Design is a small custom furniture company founded upon the principles of using mesquite wood from the Sonoran Desert and making it into fine furniture, as opposed to using exotics from the rainforest. That same idea is the founding principle on which Del Bac Whiskey was founded. Stephen Paul founded the private family-owned and operated distillery company, Hamilton Distillers, Inc. in 2006. Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona they produce a unique range of Single Malts, including Del Bac.Del Bac was conceived while Stephen was drinking Scotch and barbecuing with mesquite scraps from his custom furniture company. The idea was born to malt barley over mesquite instead of peat. The result was a signature whiskey embodying the spirit of the American Southwest terroir. The unique whiskey was initially distilled using a 5-gallon alembic pot-still from Portugal. While perfecting the production process he learned how to malt barley, initially using a 6-row cattle-feed barley sourced from nearby Coolidge, AZ, later sourcing 2-row malting barley from Southern Colorado.After graduating with a 40-gallon pot-still in 2011. Stephen and his daughter Amanda incorporated Hamilton Distillers in 2011. They expanded and re-vamped their facility incorporating a 500-gallon distillery and malt house to malt 5,000 lb batches using a tank system to steep, germinate, and dry the malt between two tanks, a system that allows for more control, yielding a better quality malt.This whiskey is a true American Single Malt, finished using Scottish methods of whiskey-making. Del Bac Classic is handcrafted from a 100 percent barley malt that is mashed, fermented, copper pot distilled, aged and bottled on site. You can expect opening notes of bright stone fruits, balanced by a sweet caramel and oak finish.Pick up your bottle today!
