Black Velvet Toasted Caramel Whisky 1.75L
Black Velvet is made from corn and a smaller amount of rye grain. The corn and the rye spirits are distilled separately, at different times, using a continuous four-column distillation process consisting of a beer column, an extractive distillation column, a fusel oil column, and a rectifying column. These columns are equipped with copper trays and mesh to ensure that no off-notes make their way into the spirit. This is a key factor in creating the clean crispness of Black Velvet.
The whisky begins to take shape when newly distilled corn spirits are flavored with rye high wines. High wines are the highly concentrated spirit flavoring that is largely responsible for the spicy fruitiness of Black Velvet whisky. Using a unique technique called "blending at birth", rye high wines are mingled with corn base spirit then filled into new, charred, white American oak barrels. Here the two distillates marry and mature into the smooth, flavorful whisky known the world over as Black Velvet.
To make Black Velvet Toasted Caramel, an extra step is added: An all-natural, proprietary blend of toasted caramel flavorings is infused into mature Black Velvet whisky to create the final nectar.
