HEINEMANN offers a full range of whiskeys: rye, Tennessee and bourbon
When the Scots and the Irish immigrated in large numbers into America in the 19th century they brought the culture of their homeland, which was engrained with whiskey. In their first experiments trying to produce it in their new home, they encountered a problem: the barley. This ingredient was needed when making traditional Irish and Scottish whiskey but the United States did not provide the necessary quality. The resourceful distillers started to experiment with using corn and rye and soon developed the three classic American whiskeys. These are known around the world today: rye, bourbon and Tennessee whiskey. Rye is produced from a mash of at least 51% rye. For bourbon, however, the mash contains at least 51% corn. Tennessee whiskey mash is also composed of more than half corn but is also cleaned with a specific filtering process. This method makes Tennessee whiskey even softer in taste and brings to life its complex flavours. The well-known brand Jack Daniel's, for example, provides traditional Tennessee whiskey as it is filtered with charcoal. You can purchase the diverse styles and levels of quality of this iconic whiskey from HEINEMANN online, as well as many other luxurious American whiskeys.
Made in real oak barrels: the vast variety of flavours of American whiskeys
Just as with any other spirit, when it comes to American whiskey you should always opt for first-class quality. Manufacturers such as Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam, Maker's Mark and Bulleit offer their whiskeys in various stages of maturity. Jim Beam Signature Craft is aged for 12 years in old oak barrels so it offers a fine combination including notes of chamomile and caramel combined with hints of rustic oak. The Bulleit Bourbon, however, provides more spicy notes of maple and nutmeg. On the HEINEMANN online store you can find many top-rated American whiskeys. With a valid EU-ticket you are able to order the item of your choice from HEINEMANN and can then have it delivered directly to your home.
