Harlem Standard Blended Whiskey

HARLEM STANDARD STRAIGHT WHISKEY ($39)—This blended whiskey was “born in Harlem [NY] and blended in Kentucky,” although it’s actually distilled in Lawrenceville, Indiana, before blending and bottling in Bardstown, Kentucky. Inspired by the Harlem Renaissance during Prohibition, Harlem Standard donates a portion of proceeds to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund. It is a blend of 45% alcohol light whiskey from 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% barley malt and rye bourbon, aged three years. It is currently available only in New York stores and top restaurants like Marea and Benoit.
