We rest George Dickel for 30 days in ex-TABASCO barrels that still contain some residual aged red pepper mash, allowing spice & flavor imparted on the wood to finish our whisky. We then take TABASCO Brand Pepper Sauce and distill it to create an essence, which we then carefully blend together to create George Dickel Tabasco Brand Barrel Finish. The result is a deliciously smooth whisky with a spicy finish.
For over a century, the legacy of two Southern brands, George Dickel and McIlhenny Company’s Bourbon Brand Pepper Sauce, have left their mark on the world and their distinct tastes in the memories of people everywhere. These two iconic brands have come together in one bottle to create George Dickel Bourbon Brand Aged 8 years.
George Dickel Bourbon Brand stands out by bringing a deliciously smooth kick, made by hand and finished in small batch used to age red peppers for 8 years.
Best enjoyed as a shot with celery salt on the rim, pickle juice, or an ice chaser. Damn straight, it’s Hot Dickel!
