Notes from the Distiller:
A long and patiently aged whiskey is only as good as the grain it's born from. With our oldest expression to date, we're tapping into the time-honored techniques of the farmer distillers who invented the category in America's early days. To kick start fermentation they malted a small portion of their yearly harvest. This delicate heating process opens up the grain, allowing yeasts easier access to the sugars they'll soon convert to alcohol. It also imbues the resulting spirit with floral and earthy tonalities. Our mash bill 79% rye, 15% malted rye and 6% malted barley creates a sipping experience that evolves on the palate from soft and supple to rich and savory. A thrilling encounter accentuated by 18 years of maturation in virgin oak.
Each annual edition of our Double Malt Rye is crowned with a bespoke glass topper, handmade in Vermont. Certified Kosher.

"I spent quite a bit of time with this whiskey and never found it anything short of enthralling, well worth sampling if you can get your hands on it."- Drinkhacker
"A marvelous sipper: approachable, superbly balanced and sophisticated"
- The Whiskey Reviewer
"The age is readily apparent on the nose, which offers notes of chamomile tea, spice cabinet, antique store, grape jam, candied orange, and balanced oak. The palate is spicy, with bright citrus flavors, orange peel, pepper, and tingly spice. Water brings out guava, lemon iced tea, and mocha. The finish offers loads of spice, with drying oak tannin and more orange peel, contrasting with a hint of vanilla sweetness." - Whisky Advocate
