Aged. Rich. Flavorful. Local. These words describe of Cut Spike Distillery’s offerings—and this year, the company is unveiling a new single-malt whiskey. According to owner Jason Payne, what makes it particularly unique is the traditionally Scottish copper stills in which it’s made, but it is truly rooted in the American-style bourbon category. Cut Spike also makes vodka described as “smooth, clean, and finishing with a hint of sweetness,” and rum that is “proofed from limestone-filtered spring water and aged in whole barrels.” It pours golden in color, is light in body, and full of complex caramel and vanilla flavors. Payne, along with Tyler Thompson, Alex Freed, and Mike and Adam Cunningham, have a mission to deliver artisanal, hand-crafted spirits—including the single malt whiskey which won double gold at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits competition—that take a lot of time and care to get just right.

Because they want you to have the perfect drink, whether it be for those special occasions, paired with dinner, or just for a night in.
