Bottle Blonde: Asheville Distilling releases a new whiskey

Asheville Distilling

It’s tough to catch Troy Ball at Asheville Distilling these days. As the Troy of Troy & Sons Spirits, a line of whiskey she produces with her family, she spends much of her time traveling the country representing the brand. This year, she’s already poured sips at SXSW in Austin and the American Music Association in Nashville.

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.
