Blonde starts with rare heirloom Turkey Red Wheat and White Corn, grown on Peaceful Valley Farm in the lowland hills of Western North Carolina. That same strain of corn has been grown continuously at Peaceful Valley since the mid 1800’s, tended by generations of the McEntire Family. And in the 1800’s our wheat first arrived, brought by Mennonites eager to start new lives in a new land, but unwilling to let go of the memory and the taste of home. Modern hybrids have bigger yields and are more resistant to weather and pests, but the older grains have a flavor and softness the newer versions can’t match.
|With elegant bottle designs and sophisticated presentation, Asheville Distilling Company’s whiskey is a craft who’s taste and smell more than match its outer appeal. Our handcrafted American whiskey represents a new step in brewing, with an exceptionally precise distillation process. There is no one secret; every step, from the barrels we choose to the recipes themselves - all deliberately selected for the final batch which you, the drinker, enjoy.
