BRISTOW, Va.– MurLarkey Distilled Spirits is pleased to announce the addition of two all-natural infused whiskeys – Three Tea and Honey – to its current collection of certified craft distilled spirits. The award-winning Virginia distillery, which took home three medals including gold at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition for its portfolio, announced it will roll out the premium infused spirits in the coming weeks starting with the Three Tea whiskey on Saturday, September 15. Bottles of Three Tea will be available for purchase starting September 15 at the Bristow, Virginia, distillery and available by special order through Virginia ABC stores shortly thereafter. Honey will become available for purchase later this fall.
Handcrafted with pride and certified gluten-free, these two new creations were the invention of MurLarkey Product Master George ‘Papi’ Zwetkow and Co-Founder & President Mike Larkin, who spent months researching and developing these unique flavor blends.
MurLarkey’s Three Tea is barrel-aged with a blend of Darjeeling, Black, and Earl Grey teas for smoothness and complex, yet approachable aromatics and flavors. The resulting flavor profile and nose are reminiscent of freshly brewed tea with sweet, subtle floral notes and undertones that hint at orange peels and honey.
Utilizing all-natural, hand-harvested, local honey from Papi’s personal hive, the Honey whiskey promises a warm, spicy aroma with notes of citrus, honey, and wildflowers on the palate. Barrel-aged for a smooth, lingering finish, and reminiscent of oak and caramel flavors, Honey will be available later this season for whiskey aficionados to pick up their own bottle at MurLarkey or sample it in a signature cocktail in the tasting room.
Since 2016, MurLarkey has challenged convention, producing a broad array of award-winning, premium, handcrafted spirits and broadening its distribution networks. MurLarkey is now available at over 100 Virginia ABC stores and hundreds of restaurants and hotels across Washington, DC and Virginia, and now at select Total Wine & More locations in Maryland.
