Unlike ordinary whiskies, Wheyskey is made with whey, which is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. This is a more sustainable ingredient because the company upcycles domestically produced whey instead of using grains (as traditional whiskey does). The addition of whey also gives the drink a complex flavor of oaky vanilla, toffee, and warm spice notes. As Emily Darchuk, Founder and CEO of Wheyward Spirit, explains, “[We] truly believe this spirit will be a game changer for both the liquor and dairy industry as well as consumers who are drinking more mindfully and are seeking more approachable and versatile options.”
Wheyskey by Wheyward Spirit is available nationwide via the Wheyward Spirit’s website.
