Defiant Single Malt Whisky, NC

Defiant Whiskey


Picked up a bottle of Defiant the other day. This is a Single Malt Whisky out of Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina distilled by the Blue Ridge Distilling Company. They boast of their simplicity in their ingredients and overall process or should I say technique because they claim to defy stodgy recipes and processing and rely on their taste. They don’t filter due to their clean local water source. They also don’t age very long but still able to impart some of the white oak and barley.

It’s an easy drink. Clean with some mild fruitiness and generous burn on the finish. It has won some local Carolina awards. You can check out their video on their website which is mostly about their attitude behind their product.

Good stuff. Give it a try.
