Scotch drinkers looking to break into American whiskey should start here, because this lighter-bodied rye with beautiful black pepper spice makes a nice bridge from smoky, light-bodied Scotch.

This 100% rye whiskey is nutty and spicy with hints of banana, vanilla and toffee. Aged for less than 2 years, it doesn’t taste young at all! Instead, it's smooth and not too hot.

You don’t find many 100% rye whiskeys, and even more rare is one that is also 100% certified organic. To top it off, 85% of operations at the distillery are powered by their solar-panel covered rooftop.
