Rejoice. It’s been talked about for too long but now Daddy Rack, an original Tennessee Straight Small Batch Whiskey, is ready for us Brits to enjoy and we can’t wait!
Made from an original recipe, Daddy Rack is a smooth and sumptuous whisky that will appeal to first-time whiskey drinkers and connoisseurs alike. With rich fruity notes, this dram can be enjoyed on its own or in a variety of cocktails perfect for summertime sipping, making it the ultimate serve as we head towards lighter and brighter months.
Tennessee Whiskey conforms to all the rules of Bourbon, meaning it needs to be made from at least 51% corn. Unlike Bourbon, which can be made in any state, Tennessee Whiskey can unsurprisingly only be made in Tennessee and has to be filtered through sugar maple charcoal. This filtration process is something Daddy Rack does twice, ensuring an extra smooth whiskey. Daddy Rack is made from locally farmed corn, delivering a true taste of the American South and bringing to life the music halls of Nashville with every sip.
Daddy Rack is light golden amber in appearance, with notes of maple, honey, light oak and caramelised banana. A smooth and buttery mouthfeel, with flavours of roasted apple and banana, leading on to vanilla and a hint of nutmeg, the finish is rich and warm with subtle notes of salted popcorn.
It is perfect in a variety of simple serves to make at home, such as the “Rackhouse Lemonade” which sees 45ml Daddy Rack, 20ml Crème De Pêche, 15 ml lemon juice and 90ml lemon-lime soda all poured into an ice-filled Collins glass, the ultimate refresher in the Tennessee heat.
