We first started making peach bourbon in college. Peach season in southern Virginia ends with a dramatic rush of ripe fruit right during the final days of summer. To preserve that fleeting flavor, we would pick up crates of peaches on the cheap and add them to bourbon. The result? An infused bourbon that will remind you of summer all year.
makes 14 oz
- 2 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into eighths
- 14 oz of Kentucky bourbon
- Place the peaches in a 16 oz Mason jar and add the bourbon. Seal and shake just to combine.
- Let sit in a cool, dark place for four weeks to allow the bourbon to infuse.
- Strain the infused bourbon through cheesecloth, squeezing out excess liquid from the peaches. The infusion will keep for up to one year stored in a cool, dark place.
