James F.C. Hyde Sorgho (Sorghum) Whiskey
Value $125. A very limited production made from sorghum syrup grown and processed on the Agricenter property. This was introduced to the NYC market in March and tonight's bottle is the ONLY one available in TN at this time. When the sweet sorghum stalks are cut down, the plant’s sugar juice must be extracted immediately. This 86-proof liquor is made at Jersey Artisan Distilling. After distilling, it’s aged in small, charred American oak barrels. This gives it a taste that’s not as sweet as traditional bourbons and not as yeasty as a classic rye whiskey. “It drinks like a much older whiskey.”
Comes with “Viski” Crystal tumbler glasses, sweet sorghum-glazed pecans, and 16 oz bottle of Heritage Valley Sweet Sorghum Syrup.
