KINSEY RYE — A blend of three different mash bills of rye whiskey: A surprisingly rounded sweetness for a rye, with dry spice, ripe starfruit, and melon on the palate, with a finish of pepper and molasses.
KINSEY AMERICAN –Blended to replicate the flavor profile of a 1940s/50s sample of Kinsey: Opens bright and vibrant on the palate, leading to floral, semi-sweet vanilla notes, and finishing with hints of honeycomb and caramel corn.
KINSEY BOURBON — A blend of two different bourbon mash bills: Warm and complex on the palate, with notes of honeysuckle, toffee, unripe orange, and grass, culminating in a sweet spice finish.
The Kinsey Spirit trio is available online at New Liberty Distillery’s website, here. This boozy gift set is also available for purchase onsite at New Liberty Distillery in the South Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia.
