Dead Man’s Hand small batch is distilled and bottled in a small operation in Fairfield, California. The whiskey is aged in toasted French oak barrels for an undisclosed amount of time. The youthful notes pair best in a simple whiskey cocktail versus drinking neat, which highlights the need for more time in the barrel.
