Drink This Now: XXX Shine

What is it? An 88.8-proof white whiskey from Philadelphia Distilling (the maker of Bluecoat Gin) just hitting state store shelves.

What the hell is white whiskey? Similar to moonshine, it’s unaged, unbarreled whiskey straight out of the still, hence the clear color.

Why do I want to drink it? Because it’s local. Because it’s delicious, with a distinct corn flavor, which it owes to the fact that its main ingredient is Pennsylvania corn. Because it’s incredibly versatile for mixed drinks. And because we told you to.
