The pioneering east coast brand Hudson Whiskey has introduced its oldest release to date: Four Part Harmony, a four-grain bourbon whiskey aged a minimum of seven years.
The new release has the rich sweetness of corn, sharp peppery notes of rye, the smooth subtlety of whea, and the light fruitiness of malted barley, the company reports.
Tuthilltown Distillery was the first New York distillery to open post-Prohibition, helping rewrite state laws to allow for that kind of business.
“Hudson Whiskey has been looking forward to this moment ever since our humble beginnings upstate, so we’re thrilled to unveil our oldest release to date,” says Paul Coffey, senior brand manager of Hudson Whiskey. “Four Part Harmony is ready to ‘wow!’ dedicated Hudson fans and turn other whiskey drinkers’ heads with its bold, yet refined taste. This release shows Hudson Whiskey’s intent to continue pushing boundaries and paving the way within this pivotal time in the American craft whiskey movement.”
The Kosher-certified whiskey is pot-distilled from a mash of 60% corn, 15% rye, 15% wheat and 10% malted barley.
“I am so proud of this liquid,” says Brendan O’Rourke, Hudson Whiskey’s chief distiller. “The locally grown mash bill produces a deep amber color and nose of sweet corn, rye bread, rich vanilla and dark cherries. Drinkers will find that every grain plays its part to create a complex whiskey with a lasting finish.”
Hudson Whiskey’s reinvented portfolio recently rolled out nationwide with a new look and feel inspired by the New York subway system. Flagship variants include Bright Lights, Big Bourbon and Do The Rye Thing, with Short Stack, a rye whiskey finished in maple syrup casks, and Back Room Deal, a one-time limited-edition finished in peated Scotch barrels.
Now rounding out the new offerings is Four Part Harmony, at 92 proof. The suggested retail price is $69.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
Hudson Whiskey is available in restaurants, bars and retailers across the U.S.
