High Wire provided the following background on their Benton’s Smoked Jimmy Red Corn Whiskey:
“A few years back, we were inspired by a trip to Mexico to experiment with making a smoky spirit in the style of the stunning mezcals we had tasted. We took our idea to the quintessential expert in Southern smoke, Allan Benton of Benton’s Country Hams in Madisonville, TN. A classic Southern storyteller, Allan has never met a stranger. His wisdom, generosity, and attention to detail helped make this collaboration an incredibly gratifying success even before the spirit hit the bottle. Allan’s team hung our Jimmy Red corn in individual ham bags in his smoker alongside his hams and bacon for several weeks. Once distilled, the smoked corn produced an unctuous spirit with a salty, smoky flavor perfect for margaritas and bloody Marys alike. Made in the true spirit of collaboration, this is one limited release you will not want to miss!”
