What pairs perfectly with crisp, cold, leaf-crunching weather? Well, yes, a scarf, but guess again. The answer is wine and whiskey, and when it comes to a holiday week of turkey shenanigans, your home bar better be stocked with some of the best and most unique labels. Who better to look towards than award-winning Ammunition Wines from Daylight Wine and Spirits, who now has entered the ring into the whiskey world, and its barrel-aged whiskey is a knockout punch for any aged spirit connoisseur.
Ammunition straight rye whiskey and Ammunition straight bourbon whiskey is distilled with the ‘true spirit of America’ and forged by grit, grapes, and now grain. In this day and age, dedication to quality stands out, and there is no detail left undistilled with these bottles.
Founder and winemaker Andy Wahl understands the game of challenging and perfecting a craft, “We were able to create and cultivate an expectation of excellence with our Ammunition wines, and we’re setting our expectations even higher with our whiskies. Simply put, our wines took flight so our whiskies could soar. I’ll raise a glass to that.”
You can’t go wrong with either selection; the Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged in small 2, 3, and 4-year-old batches and finished in French Bordeaux wine barrels, while the Straight Rye Whiskey is a gorgeous blend of 2, 3, and 4-year-old rye whiskey finished in French Burgundy oak barrels that housed Ammunition’s Pinot Noir—finished with a bit of heat.
Here’s to a bold glass of Ammunition this holiday to warm the soul. Light a cigar, pour over a big cube, and watch the snowfall with the echo of football commentary in the background—cheers to these kinds of holiday moments and the company that helps make them complete.
