Category: White Whiskey (White Dog)
Product of: United States
Double pot still-distilled from fermented New York corn and bottled without aging, so according to E.U. laws not actually a whiskey at all. In the U.S. such un-aged 'whiskies' are also known as white dog and moonshine. With maturation, this same 'new make' spirit becomes Hudson Baby Bourbon.
