BLACK FLY MAPLE
Our Maple Flavored Corn Whiskey starts with a 100% corn mash, distilled and then aged in our used Black Fly Bourbon barrels. Barrels previously used for bourbon, and then in a sweet twist, handed off to our friends at Black Rooster Maple here in Keene. They age special batches of their maple syrup in our bourbon barrels, returning them to us a few months later (sadly, empty!) At this point, the barrel sees a third life, full of our corn distillate and a jug of Black Rooster’s un-aged maple syrup. We proof our Maple Flavored Corn Whiskey a bit higher than our other whiskies, for an oaky warmth that balances out the slight maple sweetness. The final product is an aged whiskey full of real, natural maple flavor; a mixture of corn from the Champlain Valley and maple from the heart of Keene, it’s truly the Adirondacks in a bottle.
