Old Man Liver Whiskey is one of the first pandemic-born 90 proof American whiskey on the market. The outrageously polished spirit, now available for purchase at OldManLiver.com, is ten times more proof than the unrefined man of music himself, Old Man Liver. Old Man Liver Whiskey offers top-shelf quality at a bottom-shelf price, with a 750ml bottle costing $38.99. It’s the first in a series of products that includes spices and spirits and is expected to continue to dominate the sector far beyond 2021.
Refined Taste from an Unrefined Background: Old Man Liver Whiskey
The oaky taste of excellent bourbon is combined with the smoky char of grilled meat and the peppery bite of hot sauce in Old Man Liver Whiskey. It’s made with Appalachian mountain water and distilled from corn, rye, wheat, and barley. Two Trees Distilling Company toasts and chars hand-selected white oak from Tennessee and Missouri on-site before introducing it to what they term “their proprietary whiskey aging process.” The end outcome is self-evident!
OML recommends drinking it straight up to properly experience the oaky/smoky/spicy characteristics. If it’s hot outdoors, throw in some ice. Need some recipe inspiration? Check out his website for his tried and true favorites. Stronger than Jack, Old Man Liver Whiskey is uninhibited, unpretentious, and unapologetic like OML himself.
The following is a summary of the brand’s history: On Fremont Street, in the neon-lit district of downtown Las Vegas, Old Man Liver and his old woman were drinking one night. He extolled the virtues of good old American whiskey and bemoaned the fact that the drink he was holding was neither powerful nor flavorful. Old Man Liver’s old lady encouraged him to create his own whiskey. His dream came true after nearly a year of overindulgence, trial, error to get the ideal flavor.
Old Man Liver is a touch more potent than other whiskies, and its sharp flavor and attitude help it stand out in an oversaturated spirits market. While Father’s Day is over, this whiskey would make the perfect gift for the old man in your life! Want to bring the flavor out of your favorite means, check out the Old Man Liver Red Menenace Premium Spice ($8.99). It can be used on anything from pasta and meat to seafood. So far, I have used it on Beyond Burger Plant-Based Patties and it gave it a nice kick! It can be used as a grilling rub or just like you would use salt and pepper with any recipe.
