|Donner-Peltier's LA1 Whiskey|
Happy Whisk(e)y Wednesday everyone! I'm excited to share some big news out of Thibodaux, Louisiana's Donner-Peltier Distillery which means great things for LA1 Whiskey. They will soon be expanding their distillery and in the coming months will begin full time production of the LA1 Whiskey. This production will not only include the LA1 Louisiana Whiskey which has already been released a couple times in very limited quantities, but also some brand new spirits: LA1 Rye & LA1 Bourbon! If this doesn't make you excited, then you probably shouldn't be reading my Whisk(e)y Wednesday posts. I'll keep you posted about when we can expect these new whiskeys to be released. In the meantime, I think they still have a little bit of LA1 over at Lock & Key.
Also, congratulations to Donner-Peltier are in order because the Rougaroux Sugarshine Rum was just awarded a score of 93 by the Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI), making it the highest rated rum being made and produced in Louisiana! Make sure to look for all their products including the other Rougaroux Rums as well as the Oryza Vodka and Gin at both locations of Calandro's Supermarket in Baton Rouge!
