Hudson Single Malt Whiskey

Hudson Single Malt Whiskey is made from 100% whole grain malted barley,  then it is aged in heavily charred new Missouri white oak barrels,  aged under 4 years and bottled at 92 proof.  All though it shares the same grain bill as Scotch, American rules require new oak barrels be used for every batch.  Unlike Irish and Scotch whiskeys that reuse whiskey barrels.  The new charred oak barrels give a bolder and woody flavor showing a rich amber color with notes of vanilla, caramel and finishing with a hint of spice.  Made at Tuthilltown Gristmill in Gardener New York, Hudson Whiskeys are some of the finest I have sampled and they were given the Best Artisan Distiller Award in 2010.  Enjoy straight or add a drop of water.  This is a must try American Single Malt.

News from the Beer Department

    At Acton Wine & Spirit Co.(and Marlborro Wine & Spirit Co. as well) we love more than just wine.  We have a couple of talented guys here who love beer.  REALLY LOVE BEER.  And they buy A LOT of beer.  So much so that we have to do a little “thinning of the herd”

    Starting right now we have ON SALE about 120 different Craft Beers.  These are all marked with a red tag and the savings are significant (20% or more).  We are including brews from Amager, De Proef, Mikkeller, Nogne-O, Lost Abbey, The Bruery & more… these are mostly available in very small quantities and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

    We also have a new craft beer guy!  His name is Xandre.  He used to work for us, and just got back from a stint at Element Brewing Co. where he learned about brewing from the ground up.  A lot of you will recognize Xandre from his time that he worked here before.  We welcome Xandre and you can follow him at on Twitter at Xandre@ActonBottleShop.
