Batch #1 is bottled at 58% alc/vol (116 Proof) • 750mL
Our process is unique in that we use 94% Danko Rye grown on the shores of Conesus Lake. This big, bold, spicy grain captures the true spirit of the Empire State. Our temperature controlled fermentation and proprietary pot, column, pot, column distillation method all contribute to our unique flavor profile. And that is before being set to age in our custom charred barrels!
The Empire Rye requirement to use local grains and barrel down at a lower proof, in combination with our harsh NY winters and hot humid summers, all contribute to the unique flavor of this product. Unfiltered to provide you with true and authentic flavor, our Rye is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a traditional whiskey cocktail.
- Nose: Floral essence of violet candy, backed with rye spice and cedar, with hints of maple.
- Body: Notes of honey on the tongue with baking spices and fresh Cedar giving way to dry wood.
- Finish: Dry with a smooth, slightly warming, exhale. Easy finish at Barrel Strength with a hint of sweet oak.
