Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon Whiskey PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Litchfield Distillery - Maple  Bourbon Whiskey
Litchfield Distillery located in Litchfield, Connecticut is known for its exceptional bourbons, as well as their other small batch spirits. Their Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon Whiskey is the perfect taste of New England as it starts out as Litchfield Distillery Straight Bourbon that is then aged in retired bourbon barrels that a local sugar maker aged his maple syrup in, so there are layers of luscious flavors with delightful maple notes.

 

Litchfield Distillery - Maple Bourbon WhiskeyProduct Information: Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon Whiskey is made from a delectable blend of locally grown corn, rye, and barley. This tasty bourbon took home a Bronze Medal ADI Craft Spirits 2020 award. It is 43% alcohol by volume (86 proof), and each bottle proudly bears its handwritten bottle and batch numbers on the front of the bottle. Our bottle number was 298, Batch 17. Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon retails for $47.99 for a 750 ml bottle. Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon is presented in a beautifully designed tall bottle with an amber label proudly bearing their logo of a batcher rolling a barrel and a black wax covered stopper.  

Bottle notes: "A local sugar maker ages their craft maple syrup in our retired bourbon barrels. After the syrup is produced, the barrels return home to the Batchers' who promptly refill them with Straight Bourbon. The result is a smooth bourbon that highlights the maple's sweet and complex character." To our way of thinking, this process truly defines the meaning of a product coming full circle.  

Tasting Notes: The color is a rich, burnished amber color. The nose elicits lovely sweet maple notes. On the palate, the rich bourbon flavor is rounded out with maple notes for a delectably long and lingering finish. This bourbon is an outstanding sipping bourbon that is very nice with a little water to open up its notes or used in cocktail or culinary recipes.  

Luxury Experience was "In the kitchen and behind the bar®" creating some incredibly special handcrafted cocktail and culinary recipes to tempt your palate and inspire your own creations using Litchfield Distillery Straight Bourbon.

Luxury Experience - Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie - Photo by Luxury Experience

Luxury Experience - Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust -To celebrate autumn, pumpkins, and maple syrup, we created Luxury Experience - Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust, which has Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon in the pumpkin custard and is garnished with LD Maple Bourbon whipped cream for an ultra-decadent finish. The store-bought gingersnap cookies used in the crust make pie-making super easy even for novice bakers. Perfect for the autumn season and Thanksgiving, we think this recipe will become a favorite.  

Luxury Experience - Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust
Servings: 10-12
10-inch (25-cm) pie plate needed 

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius)

Gingersnap Crust Ingredients:

2

Cups

Gingersnap cookies, finely crushed

4

Tablespoons

Butter

Method for the Crust: Add the finely crushed gingersnap cookies and butter to a food processor and process until the crumbs stick together. 

Note: Finely grind some extra cookies to scatter on the plate for presentation. 

Lightly spray your pie plate with vegetable oil so that you can easily cut and remove the pie from the pie plate. Evenly press the crumb mixture over the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the crumb mixture, place another pie plate on top and lightly but firmly press down to create a firm crust. Remove top pie plate and refrigerate crust while you make the filling.  

Pumpkin Filling Ingredients:

2

Large

Eggs

2

Cups

Cooked Pumpkin (canned)

0.75

Cup

Sugar

0.5

Teaspoon

Salt

1

Teaspoon

Cinnamon Powder

1

Teaspoon

Ginger Powder

1.5

Cups

Evaporated Milk

1

Ounce

Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon

Method for the Pumpkin Filling: Add eggs to a large bowl and beat using a whisk. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined. Pour into prepared gingersnap crust. Cut a piece of aluminum foil and lightly wrap around edges of the pie so the crust does not get too brown. 

Important Note for Baking: As the filling is a custard, you start the baking process at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius) for 15 minutes. 

Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) for the balance of the time, approximately 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Baking time will vary according to size of pie plate used. 

Remove pie from the oven and cool on a baking rack. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator before serving. 

Maple Bourbon Whipped Cream Ingredients: 

0.5

Cup

Heavy Cream

2

Tablespoons

Litchfield Distillery Maple Bourbon

2

Tablespoons

Maple Syrup

Method: Chill metal bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream in the metal bowl until soft peaks form. Add the bourbon and the maple syrup and finish whipping cream until firm. 

Presentation: Pipe (or spoon) whipped cream on the pie or on individual slices. Scatter remaining finely gingersnaps on each of the plates alongside the slice of pie.

We hope that you enjoy trying Luxury Experience's cocktail and culinary recipes, and that they inspire you to create your own recipes.

Cheers, its cocktail time!
