It’s not the first time we have seen a music artist expand into the alcohol industry, and specifically whiskey. Perhaps it’s the lifestyle, the tour bus traveling the country with whiskey being the artist’s fuel, their muse!
In the case of this whiskey, it was Yelawolf who teamed up with Next Century Spirits to develop Creek Water. Yelawolf is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and even fashion designer. Next Century Spirits distill their own spirits as well working with individuals to distill their spirits.
Creek Water Whiskey Mash Bill
This is defined as a bourbon which means it has to have at least 51% corn, to have been aged in oak barrels, and to be 100% made in America. Bourbon must be at least 80 proof (40%). The actual mash bill is 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malt. Breaking traditional barriers, Creek Water whiskey is 100 proof, 50% alcohol.
A Unique Distilling Process
Yelawolf was wise to choose Next Century Spirits as his distilling partner. Creek Water whiskey was created by using patented advanced technology to mature the whiskey. We won’t know how long Creek Water whiskey has been aged for. What we do know is that this new technology speeds up the aging process and therefore cuts down the cost of production. This allows the consumer to enjoy a fine bourbon at around $25 a bottle.
What to Expect from Creek Water Whiskey?
The name implies a freshness of running water but as soon as you smell the whiskey, you know there is far more to it. We noticed hints of vanilla and even leather while others detected a sweetness and even a touch of tobacco.
When it comes to the flavor, initially we had a smoky sensation of warm spices- predominantly cinnamon. Rounded off with a lovely smooth oak finish. You might call it simple yet effective, leaving you with the urge for more.
Who is Creek Water Whiskey for?
If you have never heard the term ‘Slumerican’, as soon as you take your first sip of Creek Water whiskey, it will all make sense. Slumerican is a term used to describe a southerner who is probably not well of but who doesn’t judge others. It is a person who loves chaos and a good time and often pushes the boundaries of authority. While no laws were broken, Creek Water certainly pushes the boundaries.
Creek Water was created with everyone in mind from bikers to blue-collar workers, millennials and hipsters. The extremely reasonable price allows people from all walks of life to buy it. But there is an elegance that cannot be associated with a cheap brand of whiskey. By no means are we sexist, but it does bring out the masculine side of us. Even the females in our tasting group agreed that while wanting to drink more, we also wanted to get out our toolboxes.
How Should You Drink Creek Water Whiskey?
Whichever is your preferred method, Creek Water whiskey can take it. If you add water without upsetting the flavors, the same can be said for on the rocks. Neat is probably the best way to appreciate the true fullness of this bourbon is neat.
And what about cocktails? Absolutely! Here are two of our favorite recipes that bring out the best of Creek Water whiskey.
Mint Julep Snow Cone
We love this cocktail with Creek Water because of the connections to the southern U.S.
- 2 oz Creek Water
- ¼ oz syrup
- Crushed ice
- 6-8 mint leaves
Creek Water Mule
The classic whiskey and ginger beer cocktail can brb rough to a whole new level with the distinct flavors of this bourbon.
- 1 ½ oz Creek Water
- 4 oz ginger beer
- 1 tablespoon of lime juice
- Mint, or a slice of lime to garnish
A Nationally Recognized Whiskey
Creek Water whiskey is still very new to the market compared with other brands. It was released in 2018 and since then it has been distributed in 19 U.S. states. In 2019, the Yelawolf American made bourbon won two significant awards in the industry. It was awarded the silver medal in the Wine & Spirits Tasting Competition.
It also won the San Francisco World Spirits Competition silver medal. This is one of the highest honors to achieve, showing that it is a refined and complex whiskey and one of the best in its category. To win the silver award out of nearly 3,000 entries and in such a short time is a true testimony.
Creek Water is what you would expect from an all-American whiskey but more than you would expect from a bourbon. It’s fun, it stirs up feelings of home, tradition, and brings out the daredevil in us all. The warmth and smoothness of this whiskey make it perfect for all whiskey fans, neat, on the rocks, or in cocktails.
