Putnam New England Whiskey
Freedom Favors the Bold
Since 1859 The Port on Boston Harbor has been the center of entrepreneurial commerce and prolific thinking. Built by Silas Putnam, the Putnam Nail Factory automated the manufacture of the hot-forged horseshoe nail and supplied them to both sides of the Civil War. Putnam New England Whiskey celebrates his inventive spirit, craftsmanship and entrepreneurial proclivity.
Putnam New England Single Malt – This is the first whiskey Boston Harbor Distillery produced upon opening the distillery in 2015 and celebrated it’s first release December 2017. It’s made grain-to-glass on location mashing in 100% two-row malted barley and pure water from the Quabbin Reservoir , distilled in our Vendome copper pot still with a registered serial number 1776, aged in new, white American Oak 53-gallon barrels that were toasted and heavily charred, and bottled at 100 proof. Putnam New England Whiskey has a uniquely Boston accent!
Putnam New England Rye – Grain bill is made up of 95% rye malt and 5% two-row malted barley. We re-distill Rye distillate to our Master Distiller’s “to the touch” standards. After making additional narrow heart cuts, the Rye spirit comes off the still at 155 proof. It then goes into a virgin, 53-gallon white American oak barrel that has been toasted and heavily charred until ready, then bottled at 86 proof. As America’s Original Whiskey, nothing says American more than Rye.
Putnam New England Single Malt – Putnam New England Single Malt has a big rich taste — smooth, complex with lots of character. It has a lingering finish of chocolate and coffee notes. Sip neat, with a few cubes or even in a cocktail. This whiskey is proof that Americans can make great malt whiskey too!
Putnam New England Rye – Big Spice Meets Coastal Winds. This earthy Rye leaves nothing to be desired. The nose is filled with black pepper, sea salt, and oak. Baked apple, spiced pear and vanilla back the palate. A sharper, earthy finish that you can only get from Rye wraps the whole experience up for an unforgettable silky, smooth whiskey. Served neat, on the rocks or in any cocktail.
