Erik Peterson, head distiller at Two James Whiskey opens their oldest barrel of whiskey to taste it at the one year mark. The last time the whiskey was tasted was 6 months ago, at the 6 month mark of aging.

All whiskey is clear until it is aged. It gets its color, and more complex flavor, from the wood barrel.

I expect it to be darker, have more flavor and take on the character of the wood

Said Peterson in the video.

I’m just pissed we have to wait at least another year to drink this stuff.

Two James Spirits is a Detroit distillery based in Corktown. You can visit their tasting room to taste some locally made vodka, gin, bourbon, and more.

Just make sure we get an invite.
