Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue 16 Year Old Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey
Nestled in a valley with a spring-fed creek in an area known for its population of copperhead snakes, the stocks for Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue were discovered by Nicole Austin in Cascade Hollow Distilling Co.'s single story rickhouses. These rickhouses draw inspiration from traditional Scottish barrel storage and are a rather unique feature in the U.S. that helped impart a special character onto the liquid. On the other hand, Tullahoma is a part of each whisky produced at Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. From using the Cascade Spring water that runs through ancient limestone to the distillery working with local farmers, Copper Tongue is also distinctly inspired by American traditions.
While this is the second Orphan Barrel release from Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. (following the 2016 release of Orphan Barrel Whoop & Holler 28-Year-Old), Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue marks the first from the Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., General Manager and Distiller, Nicole Austin. Over the years, the team at Cascade Hollow has released a number of award-winning whiskies under Nicole's leadership.
