We're always on the lookout for whiskey with promise, unique whiskey we find across the wide expanse of the US that's worthy of bringing to our distillery in the heart of Atlanta. We finish these whiskies mere paces away from our Scottish-style twin copper pot stills.
While we pass on most of the whiskey we samples - much of it doesn't meet our expectations, after all - the batches we ultimately invite to our distillery are ones of the utmost quality, with something unique about them. You won't find a rehash of something that another distillery or brand has already bottled here. Instead, you'll find a whiskey not only compelling but one that carries the indelible mark of our finishing touch.
How we finish our whiskies
We finish all the whiskies in our Fiddler line in-house using a host of different methods, depending on the batch - from quarter casks, to Georgia heartwood staves, to casks of other whiskies and spirits we've distilled and matured in-house.
Prior to bottling, we call a round-table with our team, including our head distiller, a fifteen-year veteran of making craft beverages, and our grassroots liaison, a Certified Specialist of Spirits. We blind taste all the variations we're considering and come to a consensus to ensure the quality of the whiskey in your bottle. Meet our team here.
Innovation carries the day
With Fiddler, we have the opportunity to explore whiskies from all parts of the globe and, in the process, elevate the rich whiskey traditions of the United States to include full transparency and the type of innovation that only an artisan distillery dedicated to the craft of making and enjoying whiskey can bring. Fiddler stands alongside our single malts and our own in-house bourbon as a true ode to American whiskey.
Batch 1 is a high wheat masterpiece, clocking in at 51% corn, 45% wheat, and 4% malted barley. The wheat lends a soft, silky texture and salted caramel, while the corn combines with the new American oak barrel to provide fresh citrus notes and warm touches of wood.
