Venison Whiskey Is a Gamey


If you ever wished you could have a whiskey that tastes just like deer, you're in luck. Later this month you'll have the chance.Steven GrasseandTamworth Distillingand Mercantile are getting ready to debut Deerslayer Whiskey which will be available November 14 and will taste like deer, mostly because there's deer in it.

In a statement, Grasse said, "No matter what the world thought 2020 would be like, it's safe to say that everyone was wrong. I have been interested in the idea of using venison as a flavoring agent for some time. The gaminess of the venison lends itself as a savory complement to the sweetness of the wheat whiskey creating a truly creative carnivorous concoction."

A bottle will set you back $65 bucks and the website describes it as a surprisingly delicate-bodied whiskey flavored with the flora and fauna of New Hampshire in autumn- specifically, venison. The Deerslayer is crafted with three-year-old white wheat whiskey that allows the venison flavor to truly shine and distilled with slow-smoked red deer venison and seasonal ingredients including porcini mushrooms, cranberries, juniper berries, and green peppercorns. Ideal for venison-lovers and non-vegans alike, the savory and smoky notes characterize this one-of-a-kind spirit, with subtle spice on the palate upfront and a lingering, gamey finish. Cheers!
