This year, celebrate the holidays with a bottle of an all-American whiskey that is a true representation of family ties, honor, and authenticity. We are all familiar with the legendary Hatfield & McCoy story and recently I had the chance to try out The Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Whiskey, which is a distinctive liquid inspired by American pride, old family recipes, and Appalachian tradition.
The feud began in 1865 with the murder of Asa Harmon McCoy, the brother of Ole Ran’l, by the Logan County Wildcats. The Wildcats were a local militia and Devil Anse Hatfield was one of the more prominent members in the group. Though it was later proven that Anse was nowhere near the location of the murder that day, it did set the stage for years of feuding between the Hatfield and McCoy families.
I was very pleased with the Legendary Hatfield & MaCoy Whiskey. Not only is it smooth to drink but it is perfect for different recipes this holiday season one of which is shared below. Now available online and in 42 states across the country, The Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Whiskey boasts a complexity that is derived from its unique blend of corn, barley, malt, special strains of yeast, infused natural flavors, and pure water.
Nose: Hints Of Green Grass, Light Vanilla, Wet Stone, Complex, and Balanced.
Taste: Medium Body, Light Black Pepper, Smoke, Layers Of Dried Apricot, Custard and Black Walnut.

Hatfield & McCoy Carrots
Today I would like to share with you a recipe that I have used for years and which can be made with the delicious Hatfield & McCoy whiskey. During most holiday meals, you will find carrots as a side and what better than to jazz them up a bit with Whiskey?
Making these carrots is very easy to do. You can use fresh carrots or canned, whichever you would like. Simply use a skillet or large frying pan to toast or brown your carrots. I am not big on browned carrots, so I just cook mine in about a teaspoon of butter for 5-10 minutes, if using fresh. Once these are done simply take the carrots and put them to the side.
Using the same pan make your sauce. I used about a cup of whiskey and the remainder of the butter (in total you will use one stick of butter). You can also sweeten the sauce with brown sugar or white sugar to taste (2/3 cup). Allow the mixture to get nice and bubbly then add your carrots.
Cook the carrots for about 5-10 minutes with the lid on. This allows for your sauce to thicken a bit and actually penetrate the carrots. TADA!! You have a new tasty side dish! How easy was that? I would highly recommend checking out the incredible Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Whiskey. Not only is it perfect to cook with but also for sipping on those chilly nights.[yumprint-recipe id=’6′]
