This Tempe, Arizona distillery has been distilling spirits since 2015, and makes all the whiskey they bottle. Peralta Bourbon holds true to the company’s name and mission statement - it’s unequivocally adventurous and different. The company notes they include a few specialty grains to create chocolate and spice notes. Those notes are very evident and in fact, provide the base for the overall flavor profile which presents more like a malt whiskey than a bourbon. While it’s still a bit rough around the edges, Peralta Bourbon’s robust and unique flavor profile and great mouthfeel more than make up for it.
