Field to Barrel – Heirloom Bloody Butcher Corn

Field to Barrel – Heirloom Bloody Butcher Corn

The fields at Flying Ace Farm continue to produce! This month, we had our third harvest of 65 acres of Bloody Butcher Virginia heirloom corn.

A Little Bit of History:

Dating back to the mid 1840’s, Bloody Butcher corn gets its name from its resemblance, when milled, to a bloody butcher’s apron. This Virginia heirloom variety grows 10-12 feet tall, reaching upwards of 15 feet and produces 1-2 ears per stalk. Classified as a dent corn, it is open-pollinated (carried by the wind), hardy and drought tolerant. Although lower yield than conventional varieties, Bloody Butcher is an artisan corn that lends an unmistakable flavor profile to the products we produce. Traditional GMO corn typically yields 135 bushels per acre, whereas Bloody Butcher yields around 70 bushels per acre. Flying Ace Farm believes that higher quality, more wholesome ingredients equals better bourbon.

Bloody Butcher corn has a higher protein and a lower starch content than commodity corn and the depth of its history can be found in its taste. Combined with malted barley and wheat, this three-grain recipe creates an interesting, fruity flavor, with lingering undertones of banana bread and kettle corn.

From Farm to Bottle:

Over 1500 pounds of Bloody Butcher corn goes into every batch we make, and produces roughly two and half barrels of bourbon. Our bourbon will age for approximately six years in new charred Virginia American Oak barrels. It is during this process that the bourbon will gain over 60% of its flavor. You don’t have to wait six years to sample this whiskey right off our still. Stop in to try Flying Ace’s White Dog Whiskey, before it embarks on the six-year journey to becoming Flying Ace’s Farm to Bottle Bourbon.

 

 

Flying Ace Farm dedicates itself to continue this Virginia farming tradition by growing, harvesting, and producing Bloody Butcher corn on our farm in Loudoun County for years to come. By doing so, we hope to preserve its historical integrity while offering it in the form of a bloody good bourbon. As we continue to expand into Monk’s on the Farm, keep an eye out for other products made with this heirloom corn.

Apple Beer, 5.5% ABV, 16 IBUs

With our Apple Beer, we attempted to create the best of both worlds by combining a pilsner recipe with 300 gallons of fresh-pressed apple juice from Glaize Apples of Winchester.

The Perfect Farm Fresh Fall Beer

We created a bone-dry, slightly spiced, warming Apple Beer that still has that fresh-pressed apple taste, perfect for fall weather. This beer was hopped with Amarillo to balance out the sweeter flavors of the malt and juice, and we spiced it with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice to complete the flavor profile.

FLYING ACE DISTILLERY WINS SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS AT 2021 NEW YORK WORLD WINE & SPIRITS COMPETITION

LOVETTSVILLE, VIRGINIA (October 20, 2021) – Flying Ace Distillery Blended Bourbon Cask Proof was awarded a Silver Medal. Flying Ace Distillery Silver Rum was awarded a Bronze Medal. In the Competition’s eight-year history, the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition (NYWSC) has established itself as one of the most respected judging events in the eastern U.S.A. The judges are among the wine and spirits industry’s most trusted authorities, not only on the subject of quality wines and spirits but also on the regional tastes and trends that drive the wine and spirits markets.

Robust Competition with Supreme Judging

Throughout two days of highly controlled blind tastings, the experienced judging panels taste every product to decide if it is medal-worthy. While tasting, judges evaluate each product on an individual basis—not compared to other entries in the flight. During this stage, judges determine which entries are worthy of a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.

The reputation of competition is defined by the quality of its judges. At the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition, the judging panels consist of the most respected, experienced experts in the wine and spirits industry. Our judges range from renowned writers and well-known New York City mixologists to esteemed beverage buyers, including Anthony Dias Blue, John Oliver, and Aimée Lasseigne New.

Flying Ace Distillery Reaching New Heights

“We are honored to accept these awards at this year’s New York World Wine & Spirits Competition, says Greg Moore, master distiller at Flying Ace Distillery, “We are extremely proud and excited to receive this acknowledgment from the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition of our team’s efforts here at Flying Ace. We strive every day to not only produce delicious, top-quality craft spirits but to also promote Virginia Agritourism, Agribusiness and of course Virginia Distilleries.”.
