Amber Dram

Amber Dram

Dark spirits with sweet oak contrast with the savoury and spicy characters of raw cinchona. Using a tonic like Midnight Mixers Amber steps up a BBT, bringing softer, woodier notes into play. Kings County Empire Rye is a far more potent, pure and flavourful Rye than the commercial norm, meaning the spice load is also more present.

Kings County Empire Rye Whiskey (750ml)

Very Limited. Back in 2015, six New York State distilleries banded together to create an association dedicated to establishing a Whiskey style exclusively for the Empire State. Today, their number counts to nine and it is constantly growing. US industry estimates suggest that as much as 70% of the rye Whiskey sold in America comes from one distiller, MGP, a maker of generic and unbranded Whiskey in Indiana.

Empire Rye then, is a “controlled category” that requires, among other things, that the Whiskey is made using a minimum of 75% New York State-grown rye, that it is distilled to no more than 160 proof and aged for a minimum of two years in new oak and that it is mashed, fermented, distilled, barrelled and aged at a single New York State distillery in a single distilling season.

Kings County’s small batch Empire Rye Whiskey is made from 80% New York-grown Danko rye and 20% Golden Promise English malt that is then aged for at least two years in charred oak barrels.

Pulled from a single distilling season, this is a complex rye, with glowing notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, maple, mint and cut grass with a finish of warm bread and holiday spice. Put simply, it’s a far more potent, pure and flavourful rye than the commercial norm.

"An alluring and inviting nose promises sweet tea, mint, dill, and a full Thanksgiving dessert spread. The palate delivers, with flavors of blueberry crumble, cherry tart, and candied ginger….a warm, spicy, and rounded finish helps bring the whiskey home.”
Whisky Advocate
"On the nose, this rye is expressive and in your face, with big notes of green apple, mint, cinnamon, dusty rye grain and black pepper. On the palate, it follows up with intense baking spices, moderate sweetness, expressive “char” character and deeply caramelized notes of custard and caramel. Suffice to say, this one is very much in my personal rye whiskey wheelhouse, with moderate heat, balanced sweetness, a hint of smoky char and a big focus on toasted holiday spice notes.”

Midnight Mixers Amber Tonic 6 X 4 pack

Midnight Mixers Amber Tonic is made in Victoria from raw cinchona bark – quinine in its natural form – with citrus, sugar and water, no additives and no preservatives.

Midnight Mixers cans are a perfect serve at 200ml. They’re light, compact and stackable, retail and bar friendly, both in and out of their 4-pack sleeves.

Sustainability is the central consideration for each part of Midnight Mixers packaging. From the low weight, Australian-made, fully recyclable aluminium cans through to cartons made locally from 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard and biodegrading adhesives; every element has been designed to minimise impact on the planet.

Each mixer in the range is designed to be intense yet balanced; to mix seamlessly with the best craft spirits. Amber Tonic layers exotic spice with a gentle astringency, making it a complete drink on its own and a versatile mixer behind the bar. Fine, compact carbonation enlivens the palate without dominating. Far from being limited to applications with Gin, Amber Tonic’s woody notes and fuller body strike balance with quality dark spirits, particularly Rum, Mezcal, Tequila and Vodka.
