Unaged Spirits

I confess, I sometimes stay awake at night wondering about the fate of this category. Mostly a result of necessity, something for new distilleries to make (and sell) while most of the production is diverted to barrels for future release. Once Albert-made whiskies and other long-aged barrel aged spirits hit the market, What will happen to these “raw” spirits? Personally, I hope they stick around, since they offer such a cool, pure expression of what is to come. Tom Firth
