Kind of a Big Dill Whiskey Gift Basket
Tullamore Dew Whiskey, pickle juice mixer, popcorn, assorted nuts, pretzels, and chips in a wicker style basket are presented to you in our Kind of a Big Dill Whiskey Gift Basket! Although many people think “pickle backs” are a recent trend, the combo actually dates back to 2006! As wordsmith/Brooklyn bartender Reggie Cunningham tells it, in the year of our Lord 2006, he was approached at the Bushwick Country Club by a gold-toothed woman who, in a “filthy redneck voice,” made the barman do a series of whiskey shots followed by brine. He fell in love and dubbed it the pickleback!
From the Distillery:
Three spirits come together to give a balance of flavour like no other. Grain whiskey gives sweet flavours. Malt whiskey gives fruit flavours. And pot still whiskey gives spice flavours.
HOW IT’S MADE
The complex yet approachable flavours in the whiskey are derived from – three types of grain, triple distillation and the blend of all three Irish whiskeys.
Triple cask-matured for depth and balance. Over a period of several years it is aged in traditional refill barrels, ex-bourbon barrels and ex-sherry butts.
