Land disputes, a hog, a forbidden romance, a New Year’s Day massacre, and revenge all played a hand in the infamous Hatfield & McCoy Feud. The legendary feud is an American tale of family, honor, and vengeance. In the end, twelve family members died, seven were sentenced to life in jail, and one had been sentenced to be hanged.
The goal of this American Whiskey was simple: make an exclusive, top-quality whiskey inspired by family recipes that anyone can afford and be proud to drink. The Hatfield and McCoy families searched for a partner who could take their 150 years of moonshine and whiskey tradition and do what their ancestors never could—make it legal.
They finally found Local Choice, an award-winning distiller out of Charleston, South Carolina, to partner with them to make a whiskey worthy of their legendary names.
With its bold, yet balanced flavor, Hatfield & McCoy whiskey can easily be enjoyed straight, on the rocks, or in your favorite cocktail. The 80-proof whiskey is made of corn, barley, malt, and special strains of yeast. In the glass, it’s honey-colors and has light legs.
The aroma is sweet, with hints of vanilla, grass, and honey. The whiskey is light on the palate with layers of pepper, smoke, dried apricot and walnut. The finish is clean and balanced with hints of caramel, vanilla and butter.
