Share on Pinterest

Louisiana is known for spicing things up and now the state has spiced up the American whiskey market by producing its first legal barrel-aged whiskey ever – LA1 – from the Donner-Peltier distillery in Thibodaux. LA1 is unique in originating from Louisiana but is also unique as a four-grain whiskey, tossing rice – locally-produced rice – into the mix along with the standard barley, corn and rye [or wheat]. LA1 is aged in charred American oak barrels upcoming as-yet-untitled Batman.

LA1 is 94 proof [48% alcohol content] but is currently only available by getting on a waiting list at the Donner-Peltier Distillery. A full release – in Louisiana – is planned for December 2014.
