Distilling Notes

Aged minimum 2 years in charred American oak barrel. Produced to adhere to the Empire Rye standards.  Empire Rye is meant to revitalize the history and allure of Rye whiskey from NY state (and Western NY in particular).  The no-corn grain bill is the historical way rye whiskey was produced in this region and highlights the unique flavor of rye whiskey.
