C.B. Fisher's Straight Rye Whiskey

Fainting Goat Spirits’ whiskeys are named after local legend Captain Basil Fisher. He led men to battle, turned swampland into playgrounds and gambled his life savings on a gold mine. As a result, streets, neighborhoods, and city parks bear his name, including the historic neighborhood where the Norman family first tried their hand at distilling. He gathered strangers together. Strangers became friends, and friends became family. And for that, Fainting Goats Spirits created a whiskey in his honor.

Handcrafted with the hope of bringing people together over their own tall tales and cocktails, C.B. Fisher’s Straight Rye Whiskey has a rich oaky nose, complemented with notes of caramelized orange peels, freshly cracked pepper, and baking spices. It has a spicy taste that tickles the tongue, but moves to a sweet creamy toffee, orange and banana bread on the back of the palate. This exceptional Straight Rye Whiskey is best served neat, but easy to sip on the rocks.
