Dec 10, 2018by Owen Bellwood

New York-based spirits producer Iron Smoke Distillery has expanded its Rattlesnake Rosie’s line of infused whiskeys to include a maple syrup and bacon-infused expression.

Rattlesnake Rosie’s Maple Bacon Whiskey is an aged four grain mash Bourbon whiskey, which has been infused with New York State maple syrup from Mendon Maple Farms and "natural" bacon flavouring. The label design features a hand-drawn pig with maple leaves decorating its body, which Iron Smoke staff have named Lulu. CEO and co-founder of Iron Smoke Distillery Tommy Brunett said: “As we develop our growing line of Iron Smoke Distillery products, we are ecstatic over the reaction to this latest release from our Rattlesnake Rosie’s line of tasty elixirs complementing the huge success of Rattlesnake Rosie’s Apple Pie Whiskey. Straight up or added to your favourite cocktail they’ll knock your socks off your old ankles.” Rattlesnake Rosie’s Maple Bacon whiskey has been bottled at 35% abv and comes in a one-litre bottle, priced at US$30.99. The bacon-infused whiskey will be available in select US states as well as in the distillery's tasting room.
