Leopold’s Michigan Cherry Flavored Whiskey
Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated distillery in Denver, Colorado. Before Prohibition, many American distillers added small amounts of fruit juice to sweeten the whiskey as it aged in wooden barrels. Leopold’s have revived this classic style of whiskey production by juicing world-renowned Montmorency cherries from Michigan, and blending the juice with their whiskey. The spirit then rests in used bourbon barrels, giving the flavours time to marry and mature while drawing out notes of vanilla, marzipan, and spice from the barrels. Like all Leopold Bros. spirits, this is bottled by hand, to preserve the rich cherry flavour, full burgundy colour, and soft whiskey finish.
