In brewing, Plumage Archer is characterised by very sweet, malty, caramel, bready, smooth flavours.

Maize can also be used by distillers to create bourbon style whisky without needing to pre-cook the maize. Crisp’s Flaked Torrefied Maize is GM-free.

Dee | American Whiskey Recipe Kit

$49.95 inc. GST

Here we share our take on a great American Whiskey or Bourbon, which we are not allowed to call this due to the five rules of what is a Bourbon. Bourbon is a type of whiskey, much the way that champagne is a type of wine. So all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon.

Cheers #enjoyresponsibly #distilsafely
