How to use:Enjoy in classic whiskey cocktails or neat

“Six Woods Malt Whiskey is not only Los Angeles’ first aged whiskey but it’s also one of the country’s most unusual interpretations of the classic spirit. Notes of unfinished wood, cotton candy, spice and dirt are all present in this complex drink. When you pour it over a big ice cube, it opens up even more.”

“The woods they use are mulberry, hickory, red oak, hard maple and two grape woods. Each wood has a distinct flavoring, so they make sure to place each one in the batch for a predetermined amount of time. Much like inserting a teabag into hot water, this allows the flavors to infuse into the whiskey much easier than aging them in different barrels.”
Whiskey Fact: SLOW HAND Whiskey is LA’s first since Prohibition.
SLOW HAND Six Woods Whiskey starts as organic malted barley, which Greenbar Distillery ferments cool and slow into a delicious beer, then distills to precisely capture the best flavors. We age the spirit in 1,000 and 2,000-gallon white oak vats with house-toasted staves of the additional woods for enhanced flavor.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
SLOW HAND Six Woods Whiskey is aged for as long as it takes to develop flavor. The Greenbar Distillery team rigorously tastes every other day and their trained palates know the exact time the spirit reaches perfection. For SLOW HAND Six Woods Whiskey, that moment arrives at under three years. Any longer and the taste would become too ‘woody’.
