Kick off the Christmas season with Rock Town Distillery

Rock Town Distillery is a true Arkansas success story. Given that the Natural State has never been known for its spirits distillation tradition, Rock Town owner Phil Brandon really took a chance by opening up his distillery in 2010—and the liquor just keeps getting better and better. If you haven't had a taste of the good stuff in awhile, or if you just like it so much that you need to taste it all the time, you'll be excited to know that the distillery is hosting a Holiday Whiskey Tour on Sunday, December 13th at 4 p.m.

The Rock Town Crew has put together a variety of featured whiskeys, including the 3-year-old Arkansas Straight Bourbon, Single Barrel Rye WhiskeySingle Barrel Hickory Smoked Whiskey and Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey—and those last three will all be served at cask strength. Each whiskey will be paired with food from Kent Walker Cheese, Hillcrest Artisan Meats and a holiday treat from Loblolly Creamery.

Through my work with Arkansas Made magazine, I had a chance earlier this year to follow Rock Town's production process all the way from a corn field out around Blackwell, through the distillation process, and into  finished bottles ready to ship. It's a fascinating and precise chain of events—and the ingredients come almost entirely from Arkansas. So check out how Phil Brandon and Rock Town Distillery get that delicious bourbon into the bottle, then make a reservation to get some of that delicious bourbon into you.
