Gristmill’s Fly Piton Corn Whiskey is named after the local black flies that inhabit the area:
“Black flies are synonymous with the Adirondacks, as anyone spending time here can tell you. Like us, they’re active in the mountains and seek out adventurers making their way through the High Peaks. We grudgingly co-exist with these small but fierce locals (and find that our Black Fly bourbon whiskey is just the thing to take the edge off their bite)” (Gristmill Distillers).
Rusty Piton is also an homage to the rock climbers and mountaineers, and their steel pitons that they hammered into the mountain side for protection as they made their ascent. “The name was born of a winter day ice climbing with friends at Silver Lake, an area of cliffs and ice here in the Adirondacks” (Gristmill Distillers). Bottled at 40% ABV this white whiskey is sweet on the nose, with a warm, subtle hint of straight-off-the-cob sweetness.
