LiDestri Spirits is launching its newest line: Cask & Crew Premium Straight + Flavored Whiskey.
Cask & Crew straight and flavored whiskeys are a blend of fine three-year-old Canadian rye and classic barrel aged American corn whiskey. The line's three initial flavors include a straight blend of rye and whiskey, and two that are "corrected" with Walnut Toffee or Ginger Spice.
"Brown flavored spirits are really having a moment," LiDestri Spirits Vice President Joe Ragazzo says. "We wanted to create something that was complex enough to appeal to whiskey aficionados, yet inviting enough to be an intriguing experience for people exploring whiskey for the first time."
According to Ragazzo, the name “Cask & Crew” pays homage to the new American oak casks that were selected to make the two whiskeys, and the crew who brought the brand to life.
"We sampled a wide range of fine whiskeys from some of our renowned distillery partners in North America, and went through dozens of iterations using a wide range of whiskeys to achieve the final blend," Ragazzo adds.
Cask & Crew is the first premium spirit in LiDestri's expanding portfolio.
