Cocktails

Mayberry Spirits whiskey contains something unique – sorghum syrup – which gives the whiskey notes of honey and caramel (similar to agave or molasses). Our whiskey can be enjoyed “neat” or in one of our signature cocktails!

Mayberry Spirits’ Toasted Oak and Toasted Vanilla are great “sipping whiskies” and the Crystal Moon taste profile is great for mixed drinks that traditionally use rum, vodka, or tequila.  Here are our signature recipes for your taste buds’ pleasure!
