Defiant Whiskey American Single Malt Whiskey
Defiant comes from Blue Ridge Distillers in Bostic, North Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains between Asheville and Charlotte. The water for the whiskey is drawn from an aquifer under their distillery, and they’re just as proud of their three other ingredients: yeast, premium barley cracked on a custom roller mill, and toasted American white oak. The whiskey is aged only 60 days, in a proprietary process to increase the oak’s contact with the whiskey. It’s already won prizes such as the “Best New Whiskey of 2013” by the Drammies Awards.
