Cut Spike Distillery, formerly known as Sòlas Distillery and the sister company to Lucky Bucket Brewing Company, is pleased to announce the release of Nebraska’s first single malt whiskey, Cut Spike Single Malt Whiskey. The new spirit landed on shelves in the metro Omaha market the week of August 12th, and is also for sale at the distillery.
One of the country’s few American single malt whiskeys, Cut Spike Single Malt Whiskey is made from premium grains and limestone-filtered water sourced from the Sandhills of Nebraska. The highest-quality cut is aged for two years in charred American oak barrels at the production facility in La Vista, where it is also brewed, distilled and bottled.
The new distillery name is a nod to Omaha’s railroad history, as it is derived from a term used for a hand-forged railroad spike. The brand perfectly aligns with Cut Spike Distillery’s philosophy of doing as much as possible by hand. Its distilling process even features two hand-pounded copper pot stills from Edinburgh, Scotland, home of the world’s great Scotch whiskey distilleries.
Cut Spike will be releasing two other spirits into the market over the next year. Cut Spike Premium Vodka is expected to be released in the fall of 2013 and Cut Spike Barrel Aged Rum will be released in 2014. Cut Spike Distillery is located at 11941 Centennial Road in La Vista, Nebraska.
