Yards Brewing & Philadelphia Distilling Collaborate On Tough Broad Malt Whiskey (300 Bottles Only-SOLD OUT)

30 November 2016

From Yards:

We've always wondered what would happen if we tried to distill from one of our base malts. To help us in our experiment, we called on our friends at Philadelphia Distilling. They are leaders in the local craft spirit movement who share the same commitment to quality and community as we do. Plus, it gave us a chance to sample beer and whiskey during "business hours.”

After a few meetings, we settled on a recipe loosely based on
Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale and sent it to our Philadelphia Distilling friends to work their magic. They initially distilled in a small still to fine tune the recipe.

After perfecting it, they ran the final product through a Forsyth’s 1500L copper pot still twice before aging the whiskey in a high charred 53-gallon new American oak barrel. The end result is a 90-proof spirit with beer-like flavors and aromas.

Tough Broad Whiskey LogoEven though this is a high-quality product and we’re dedicated to our craft, we’re also having fun and not taking things too seriously. Tough Broad is a name that roots us where we live. It’s a tribute to Philly's underdog spirit, its history and character.

Look for hints of caramel, toffee, and vanilla, warm spices like cinnamon, and a little bit of wood on the nose. This is where you'll pick up on the malt character from the beer base. Take a sip and notice those sweet, round malty flavors, a spiciness up front then wood dryness at the end. 

Pre-order now by contacting Pete at Philadelphia Distilling. Call (215) 671-0346 x13 or email pete@philadelphiadistilling.com

We only have 300 bottles available from this inaugural batch of Tough Broad! Each 375mL bottle is $45 and there is a limit of two bottles per customer, so we strongly encourage you to pre-order.

You'll receive your pre-ordered whiskey and get a sneak peak inside their new digs. Plus you'll get the chance to chat about the collaboration with both companies' founders while sipping on a complimentary Bluecoat Gin cocktail or Yards beer. Win-win-win-win?
