Proof66 Notes

Dutch's Spirits is a rebirth of the Prohibition-era 1932 bootlegging operation run by Dutch Schultz. His distillery was apparently unearthed by the Charles and Janet Adams, who acquired the property and, upon inspection, made the discovery. They promplty planned to excavated and revitalize the operation. They look to rebuild and revitalize what has become an historic landmark.

Dutch's Spirits Sugar Wash moonshine is made not from corn or any other grain but rather demerara sugar. According to the Tax and Trade Bureau, the spirit is produced at SilltheOne Distillery in New York, presumably by contract while the excavation and revitalization continues.

This is a puzzle to classify. The federal Tax and Trade Bureau has this spirit classified as "neutral cane," which is a bit of a puzzle. It's not rum--despite being distilled from sugar--and at least according to the TBB it's not vodka either--though neutral cane spirit seems to imply as such. It is certainly not whiskey, since it's not made from grain. In an effort to stay true to the ingredient and put it in its more likely peer group, we have avoided classification as a whiskey or rum and instead put it with vodkas.
