    New Distillery

    There is a post in the Industry news section about a new KY distillery being started by Ray Jamieson. I googled his name and it looks like he is partners with the Benjamin Prichardís Double Barreled Bourbon brand as well a bourbon based orange-apricot spirit called Sweet Lucy.

    Wade, I wonder of the spirit liqueur category is gaining legs. I saw a new Macallan 25% abv liqueur in our market recently which incorporates the famous whisky and flavourings of various kinds.

    Gary, Do you mean the Macallan maple flavored (scotch)? It has been popping up in a LOT of stores in my area. I tried it last year at a tasting. Is was very tasty, tasted like maple syrup. I don't know if I'd like to drink it all the time but it might be good on pancakes

    Mike, I think so, it comes in a heavy glass decanter-style bottle. I know in cognac the idea took off some years ago, blending cognac with flavorings and selling it at a liqueur proof. I think Alize was one of those products, maybe the idea spread from there to whiskey. It's always been around of course, e.g. the WT liqueur but it's being given a new spin with elegant packaging, different names, etc.

    Has anyone heard of/tried Phillips Union, a blend of bourbon and Canadian whiskey? Comes in plain, vanilla, and cherry flavors. Sounds like whiskey for non-whiskey drinkers.

    There was a thread about the Philips Union stuff.

    Do you know if it's a "real" distillery?...Are there mash tubs, cistern room, warehouses? Will they create product?

    I have had the regular Phillips Union whiskey and found it to be quite tasty. I also look forward to trying the cherry version!
