DIY Corner: Age Your Own Scotch With Whisky Works

Just came across this totally hilarious account of aging hooch at home with a Whisky Works kit, posted on Christie’s Corner, a pretty excellent cooking blog.

Whisky Works consists of a wee little American oak cask, instructions and a 750ml cask strength blend of 8 to 10 single malt whiskies. It is available from Canadian independent scotch bottler Premium Bottlers.

Basically you pour the bottle in the cask and wait.

I won’t spoil the ending, other than to say it involves a harsh lesson in the Angel’s Share. Even if you already know what that means, you’ll want to check out all 29 episodes on Christie’s blog. They’re posted in reverse chronological order, so you’ll have to skip to the bottom and scroll up. (Spoiler alert: The top of the second link gives it away.)

As the Cask Turns: Episodes 1-10.

As the Cask Turns: Episodes 11-29.

Also, here’s the Whisky Works flyer:
