Cut Spike Distillery.

Cut Spike, named from a term used for a hand-forged spike, is an artisan distillery specializing in premium spirits, designed with a nod to railroad history and doing work by hand. One of the country’s few American single malt whiskeys, Cut Spike Whiskey is made from premium grains and limestone-filtered water sourced from the Sandhills of Nebraska. The highest-quality cut is aged for two years in charred American oak barrels.
