MOUTH SAYS...

This rye whiskey is a total masterpiece... black pepper spice floating on a rich and malty sweet body with an unbelievably long finish. Yes.

Hillrock Estate is a working farm in upstate New York really committed to the idea of a grain-to-glass distillery. They grow, malt, ferment and then distill all on the same property (with a little help from the neighbors when they need extra grain).

So why "Double Cask"? Well, after a couple of years aging in standard American oak barrels, the rye finishes aging in a second barrel made from deeply charred wood, which gives the whiskey a ton of mellow sweetness and vanilla.

tip of the tongue

This is an amazing whiskey to buy as a gift (especially if you're shopping for us). The elegant bottle is hand-numbered, and the rye whiskey inside is one of the best we've tasted.

 

45% alcohol by volume. Comes in a 750ml bottle.
