Louisville-based Copper & Kings American Brandy Co. has announced their latest barrel-finished, copper pot-distilled American Brandy limited release: Way Up West.
Way Up West American Brandy is five years old, with 30 months of maturation in American single malt whiskey barrels, following 30 months in Kentucky Bourbon barrels.
The varietal blend is Copper & Kings’ “Alliance Blend” of classic brandy grapes — muscat, chenin blanc and French colombard.
As with all Copper & Kings’ American Brandy, the spirit is non chill-filtered, nor adulterated with boisé or caramel color.
Master Distiller Brandon O’Daniel describes Way Up West as, “Quite lean and spicy for a brandy, and nicely dry and crisp with just an echo of peat. It has a nice smack of light smoke, a little whiskey like salinity and a touch of salted caramel. And then that long brandy finish. This is just delicious on the rocks, or with a little cold water to open it up and let it bloom.”
The suggested retail price is $65 per 750-ml. bottle.
Way Up West American Brandy is available in retailers across the Copper & Kings national distribution footprint and at the distillery.
“How far can American Brandy travel?” poses Copper & Kings Founder Joe Heron. “Well, way, way up West I guess.”
