From bourbon to corn whiskey to rye to wheat whiskey and more this style guide will get you ready to dive into finding the best American whiskey for your palette.
It’s fascinating that so many people ask me, friends or their trusty “siri” or “ok google” for that everyday. That, and “best bourbon,” “best rye,” and so many other similar requests for this ever elusive answer. Why is it fascinating? Well because “best” is subjective, of course! Yet there are thousands of resources out there espousing what is “best” when whomever is making that decision doesn’t have your palate! They might not have even remotely the same preferences as you.
Whiskey; we sip it slowly, we mix it into cocktails, some of us toss it back, and some of us don’t go near the stuff. But if you’re down with that cold hard brown, then you may not realize the scientific miracle that resides in your glass.

It may seem unusual now to conceive of the bearded and mustachioed world of craft alcohol as something inherently feminine. In part, this is because general western knowledge of beer, wine and spirits extends only as far back as 100 years, with the formation of the major commercial labels we drink today. Yet, prior to the Industrial Revolution, the crafts of brewing and distilling were globally predominated by women. Today, our guest writer from Town Under Black Distillery gives us a beautiful and compelling history lesson as we close out Women’s History Month.
We are all about celebrating amazing artisan and craft alcohol producers here at The Crafty Cask, so we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in working with us.
