Whiskey Distilled from a Rye Mash


When rye comes off the still it is sweet, grassy, and floral. A traditional “spicy” characteristic all come from the barrel. With this whiskey, our goal was to lightly oak the rye distillate in our 7-year bourbon barrels with added fresh oak and applewood staves.  

This is a light, tropical “summer” rye and makes for some great cocktails. A good bitter, or a splash of vermouth or ginger beer goes a long way.   

Aroma: Cardamom, rum raisin, tropical pineapple, orange peel, sugar cane
Front: Vanilla, clover, orange peel, maple and brown sugar
Mid: Smoked maple, almond, apricot
Finish: Tannic but even, white pepper, basswood

Widow Jane Dregs

Our whiskeys are bottled by racking off single  barrels. We stop short of the last inch when emptying as there is too much charcoal and sediment. These whiskey dregs are collected into a glass demijane.

When we received our new bottling line we decided to test on the Dregs demijane of Widow Jane barrels 1-100.  Our beautiful new machine proudly spit out the bottles with the labels upside down...We laughed and chalked it up to technological progress and set a new tradition for us. Every 100 barrels the dregs are bottled upside down in a limited release of up to only 100 bottles. 

Our founder said we make such incredibly smooth whiskey, sometimes he feels nostalgic for a hot whiskey he remembers in his youth. When you are in the mood for something bolder this is the bottle to go for.
