American Small Batch Whiskey: a sour mash and rye whiskey with subtle undertones of vanilla, raspberry and pear. Fermentation of this spirit is conducted at a lower temperature resulting in a soft, smooth whiskey that still boasts 86 proof. On the other side of the palate, try their gold-medal-awarded Navy Strength American Gin: Sitting at a hefty 114 proof, Leopold's gin is done by the books: bergamot orange and juniper are distilled separately then blended to perfection to create an award winning gin.
