Cooperstown Distillery has released their new cinnamon Spitball Whiskey, now available for purchase at the distillery and online.
Named “Spitball” as a nod to the controversial, threatening and ultimately outlawed baseball pitch of the early days of baseball, the whiskey packs cinnamon heat and finishes with undertones of coffee, chocolate and caramel.
Spitball Whiskey is 70 proof.
The Cooperstown Distillery’s mixologist created a variety of craft cocktails including the Cinnamon Crunch made with spitball and Rum Chata (tastes like Cap’n Crunch Cinnamon cereal); the Spittin’ Mule, a spin on a classic Moscow Mule, made with Spitball Whiskey, Glimmerglass Vodka, Ithaca Ginger beer and fresh squeezed lime juice; and Angry Balls cider cocktail, made with a pint of Angry Orchard Crisp Cider, combined with a shot of Spitball Whiskey and a dash of Fee Brothers Cranberry Bitters.
The suggested retail price is $20 for a 750-ml. bottle.
Cooperstown Distillery is located in the heart of Cooperstown, New York, the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Cooperstown Distillery is located at 11 Railroad Avenue, Cooperstown, NY 13326. For more information, visit cooperstowndistillery.com or call (607) 282-4246. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram @Cooperstown_Distillery.
