Western Flavored Whiskey
The Foss family launched Western Honey Pepper Whiskey in 2012 with a gold medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Awards. The idea to flavor their whiskey stemmed from the family’s desire to make their beloved dark spirit more balanced and drinkable for everyone, not just whiskey lovers. While Artie loved his traditional whiskey neat, his daughters, Susie and Carolyn, imagined a smoother whiskey they could sip on the rocks… like a fancy cocktail. Today, Honey Pepper is an award winning flavored whiskey that’s admired and consumed not only by die hard whiskey purists but by newcomers to the market who seek a sweeter savory artisanal whiskey.
The popularity and success of Western’s Honey Pepper is paving the way for two more flavored whiskeys in 2020.
