In a fusion of craftsmanship, Knob Creek, famous for its excellence in the Small Batch Bourbon category, has joined forces with Smithey Ironware, a premium artisanal cookware manufacturer, to unveil a limited edition 18x seasoned cast iron skillet. This exclusive collaboration celebrates the re-release of the highly anticipated 18 Year Old Bourbon but also pays homage to the intricate artistry shared by both brands.
Smithey Ironware, known for its commitment to detail and quality, has seasoned the cast iron skillet a remarkable 18 times, 15 times more than their traditional skillets. The result is a naturally non-stick surface, boasting a rich, deep copper color, and an effortlessly clean finish. This culinary masterpiece perfectly complements the re-release of Knob Creek’s extra-aged 18 Year Old Bourbon.
Much like the aging process of Knob Creek Bourbon in oak barrels, the performance of the cast iron skillet improves with each use as layers of seasoning build up. The 18 Year Old Bourbon, aged twice as long as Knob Creek’s flagship offering, presents a complex yet balanced profile with deep flavors of caramelized oak and sweet vanilla, culminating in a warm finish. The partnership between the bourbon and the skillet is a celebration of the fine details that both brands hold dear.
Fred Noe, Seventh Generation Master Distiller, expressed the excitement for this collaboration, stating, “Knob Creek fans appreciate the quality of intentional workmanship, and we’re excited to re-release our extra-aged Knob Creek 18 Year Old for a limited time.” Isaac Morton, Founder of Smithey Ironware, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the seamless synergy between the two brands and their shared commitment to detailed craftsmanship.
To enhance the culinary experience, Knob Creek and Smithey Ironware collaborated with Executive Chef Brian Landry to create three unique recipes tailored for the 18x seasoned cast iron skillet. These recipes, incorporating various Knob Creek’s expressions, promise a gastronomic journey that highlights the robust flavors of the bourbon, providing enthusiasts with the ultimate sipping and savoring experience.
For those seeking the pinnacle of artisanal craftsmanship, the set is now available for purchase. Priced at $300.00, it includes the limited edition 12-inch skillet, two custom Clayton & Crume leather coasters, and exclusive Knob Creek-inspired recipes. This limited-edition set is a perfect holiday gift for both home cooks and bourbon aficionados alike.
