Making whiskey for a good cause – let’s toast to that!
To raise money for Seattle's "Fisherman's Memorial" and "Sea Scouts,” Mischief Distillery in Fremont teamed up with Deadliest Catch Captains to age two barrels of whiskey... One on Captain Casey and Captain Josh's boat, The Cornelia Marie. The other on Captain Sig's boat, The Northwestern.
The motion of the seas created different flavors, and blind taste-testers cast votes on Saturday for their favorite batch.
"The guys who like it neat are going with our stuff,” said Captain Casey McManus. “The guys who like to mix it, they go with Sig's stuff generally. But the thing is, with Sig's stuff, you have to have something in there to mix it up to cover the thump that really hits ya, where with our stuff it's smooth all day long."
“These guys are making an awesome product. Both whiskeys are amazing,” said Captain Josh Harris. “I'm a little partial to ours, but at the end of the day we're helping a lot of people, and it's more than you know. Because I was one of the guys that needed help and that's one of the coolest things on this planet"
All sales from this whiskey will be donated to the charities. They're hoping to raise $40,000.
