Lately, she’s has a new bottle in hand, Troy & Sons Blonde. The whiskey within is made from Old Fort corn and turkey wheat, distilled for a sweet, smooth flavor and barrel-aged until it’s rosy in color. “There are lots of hot, burning whiskeys on the market; there’s no need for any more,” Ball says. “I don’t expect that people who love a burn on whiskey will love this. This is more for people who have not been whiskey drinkers and are interested.”
Troy & Sons Blonde is available through the Asheville ABC board. Call ahead to your store to make sure it’s in stock.
