Duo Of New Whiskeys Joins Old Elk Master’s Blend Series
Colorado-based Old Elk Distillery is releasing two new additions to Master Distiller Greg Metze’s Master’s Blend Series: Old Elk Four Grain and Old Elk Double Wheat.
“By marrying traditional favorites, award-winning bourbons and whiskeys, and a bold sense of adventure, we have created two exquisite, unique whiskies that I am personally very excited to share with the world,” Metze said in a news release.
