The Defiant way is not bound by barrels or recipes or tradition. The best ingredients, Mother Nature and our intuition, guide the distilling crew. Only four parts and nothing more, create the Defiant experience -- Premium American white oak, toasted to perfection; specially cultured yeast, selected by Ferris; two-row, premium brewer’s barley; and pure water from the aquifer under the distillery. At the core of the evolution are oak spirals. The American white oak spirals used are made from premium cuts of wood. They are more efficient than barrels, and create a much smoother finish.

How long is it aged? Take a sip, and then take a guess.

Enjoy a guided tour and culminate your visit with a sampling of Defiant Whisky; bring a camera to capture photos of the distillery and our breathtaking surroundings.
