A new addition to Whipper Snapper's corn series, created to highlight the many different varieties of maize, and the first of many to come.

This rare heirloom variety, also known as ‘Jimmy Red’, was a favourite amongst southern U.S moonshiners in the early 1900s. Back in 2018 we sourced this special variety for our legendary farmer, Christian Bloecker, who also grows our yellow corn, at the Bothkamp family farm in Kununurra.

Incredibly by simply changing the corn type we see a significate flavour difference. Compared to the regular Upshot which uses yellow corn, red corn doesn’t carry the heavier vanilla or spice notes. A lighter, more gentle character carrying new honey, apple, toffee flavours developed with a creamier mouth feel.

This is the first red corn whiskey in Australia and, as always, it is perfect for enjoying across seasons and in good company.
