J Seeds Apple Cider Whiskey
Everyone knows the best apples are from the heart of
Washington and the best whiskey is from Kentucky.
In the fall of 1921, Johnny jumped on a train with
several bottles of cider from his orchards to share with his Uncle Gus in
Kentucky at his whiskey distillery. He got there just in time to kick off the
annual Fall Festival and decided to enter his cider in the contest and try for
the blue ribbon.
The story of the creation of J Seeds is passed down like
Johnny was helping his uncle by sweeping the distillery
before heading off to the fair. While sweeping he knocked one of his bottles of
cider and a bottle of his uncle's finest whiskey into a nearby basin. In a
rush, Johnny poured the blend into a clean bottle, capped it, and brought it
with him to the fair.
A hush fell over the crowd as the judges began the cider
tasting. They made their way slowly down the line and then, finally, reached
Johnny’s blended bottle. After one sip the judges demanded to know who’s entry
the marvelous cider whiskey blend was. It was sweet and crisp with a strong
whiskey finish, like nothing they had ever had before. Johnny stepped forward
and was awarded the blue ribbon immediately.
And the rest is history. We have recreated Johnny’s
recipe and brought it straight from America's heartland to you. Enjoy in
whatever way makes you happy. This versatile blend is equally good neat, mixed,
hot or cold. J Seeds may have been created by mistake, but we “celebrate that
mistake each time we partake.”
