King’s Family Distillery is a craft whiskey distillery in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. They were founded in 2018 by couple Justin and Cara King. Justin and Cara have more than a decade of experience in the whiskey industry. Justin comes from a moonshine and distilling background and Cara’s family owns a grain firm that she was involved in for many years.
When Holly was down in Tennessee visiting Cara, one of the owners of King’s Family Distillery, she tasted this rye and fell in love. At that time the whiskey wasn’t available in the northeast but she asked if we could bring in a few cases of it just for First Fill. You can’t get things you want unless you ask! Now available only at First Fill Spirits or in Tennessee (as far as we’re aware).
Barrel 004 | 6YR | Distilled in Indiana 51% rye, 45% corn, 4% malted barley
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Mocha and spicy Mexican-style chocolate, hazelnuts, and chocolate-covered apples. The palate is filled with full-on pepper, spice, and creamy dark chocolate. The finish is long with both black tea and chai tea with a dash of honey.
