Highland Imports Introduces New Products

By November 30, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Through San Francisco’s Endless West, Highland Imports of Fairfield released several new products to the Connecticut market in October. Two new flavor profiles were added to the Glyph molecular whiskey line, Glyph Spice and Glyph Royal. Crafted with the same techniques used to make the original Glyph, billed as “the world’s first molecular whiskey,” the new expressions are created in less than 24 hours using the “building blocks of whiskey”: flavor and aroma molecules extracted from plants, fruits and yeasts and, unlike conventional whiskeys, these are not aged. Also added to the Highland Imports portfolio is the Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey line, which includes four expressions: Port Wine Finish, double-finished in Port wine barrels for three months; Classic Rye, rye grain and malt barrel-aged in new oak quarter casks; Straight Rye, made farm-to-bottle in Pennsylvania using a classic pre-Prohibition flavor profile; and Bottled in Bond, a straight rye whiskey matured in white oak barrels for five years. Owned by female entrepreneur duo AdrinAdrina and Elliott Coon, Gem & Bolt Mezcal is crafted in Oaxaca, Mexico, using Espadín agave and fresh mountain spring water and distilled with Damiana, a flowering bush found in Mexico and believed by the Maya and Aztec civilizations to positively influence mood. Other new releases by Endless West include Gemello, a molecular wine with a flavor profile similar to a sparkling white wine from muscat grapes from northern Italy, and, reminiscent of sake, Kazoku has a sweet crisp taste with fragrances of green apple, peach and rose water.
