We're honored to have been able to team up with our neighbors down at Sons Of Liberty Spirits Co. to create Lovecraft Hopped Whiskey. About a year and a half ago we sent a few kegs of our I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale down to Sons Of Liberty for them to run through their still and age 10 gallon freshly charred oak barrels. The end result is a complex and unique whiskey that's as twisted and intriguing as Lovecraft himself.
The whiskey presents a big floral, almost botanical nose. There's a mild sweetness upfront followed by a rich nutty caramel and subtle flavors of vanilla. The uniqueness of this whiskey creates quite a special base spirit in cocktails. We spent some time with Sons Of Liberty's cocktail maestro, Ian Single crafting (and drinking) some Lovecraft Hopped Whiskey inspired cocktails. The drink below is a play off of the classic Gold Rush.
