Our
Spirits

For the modern mind.

We had a vision to make new spirits for the modern mind. We strive to create unique spirits that set themselves apart from other distilleries and mainstream spirits. Our spirits use only flavors and colors derived from natural botanicals, grains, and fruits, and are all produced on-site at our Old City location in Knoxville, Tennessee. Whether it’s one of our unique gins or a carefully-crafted, but forgotten Italian liqueur, we want you to remember the passion and hard work that goes into mindfully crafted spirits.

American (Single) Malt Whiskey

750 ml + 90 proof + 45% alc/vol

At PostModern Spirits we are Fanatics about locally-crafted beers, so we partnered with Crafty Bastard Brewery to create our American (Single) Malt Whiskey. Created from 100% malted barley, our whiskey evokes a sweet, smoky character with a delicate aromatic finish.
