Backwoods Distilling Co. Batch #2 Rye Whisky 500ml 46%
A Heritage Ryecorn is the chief ingredient in our Rye Whisky. It delivers an earthy, fresh rye bread aroma, toasty/biscuit like sweetness and a classic dry, spicy finish.
Our mash bill also includes barley (for sweetness) and wheat (for nuttiness). And finally we add a small amount of chocolate malt. You will notice this on the finish, as it lingers on the pallet, urging your next sip.
The wash is twice-distilled in our custom-designed copper pot still and transferred to its chosen cask for maturation. We have Rye Whisky maturing in a variety of American and French Oak casks, that have previously held whisky, red or fortified wines. Our first-release Rye whisky was aged in French Oak, ex-Shiraz casks and sold out in less than 24 hours.
