The rickhouses that stored the barrels for this latest release, are nestled in a valley with a spring-fed creek in an area known for its population of copperhead snakes.

This latest Orphan Barrel release, which follows on from their 2016 Whoop & Holler 28 Year Old bottling, is the first from Cascade Hollow Distilling Co’s General Manager and Distiller, Nicole Austin.

Commenting on the launch, Nicole Austin, said: "Since joining the team at Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., I've loved getting to explore all the incredible whiskies produced at the distillery. In that process, I've been excited to have found such an amazing whiskey to give a home to. Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue brings together traditions from both American and Scotch whiskeys, and the result is a sophisticated straight bourbon that's surprisingly delicate. With this release, I can't wait to share this rare whiskey with the world and showcase a bit of the magic that can comes from Cascade Hollow."

Limited in quantities, Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue, will be available next month in selected states across the US, for a RRP $100.00.
