Dogfish Head Brewery Gets Into The Whiskey Game With New Alternate Takes Craft Whiskey

Delware’s Dogfish Head Brewery is consistently one of the top craft breweries in the country. You may be familiar with the 90 Minute, 60 Minute or 120 Minute IPAs, but now, they’re getting into the craft whiskey game.

Their new Alternate Takes craft whiskey is a 45% ABV whiskey featuring notes of “candied nuts & peppery cinnamon finish with mild smoke & cocoa.”

“We approach each creative moment at Dogfish with a thirst to push new and out-of-the-ordinary ideas to the furthest limit, as no liquid concoction is out of bounds, and each take on it is part of the artistic journey. Our Alternate Takes whiskey series is an ode of sorts to the mad chemistry of R&D distilling, and we’re super excited to share this creatively fresh take on Whiskey Finished in Rum Casks with our Delmarva friends.” said Sam Calagione, Founder & CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery & Dogfish Head Distilling Co.

“In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with alternate sounds until a great record emerged. Playing on the artistically creative concept of an “alternate take,” We experimented with adding a new take on the scratch-made whiskey by exploring alternate barrel finishings, for the first of the series we are using barrels with previously aged our own Barrel Honey Rum.”

If it’s anything like they’re beer, I would expect a top-notch product.
