Most distilleries release an unaged product to have something to sell as their other distillate ages. While the folks at Coppersea also have something aging in the works, their Raw Rye is actually a style that's meant to be this way. It hails back to a time in late 1800s America when ordering a "whiskey" meant exactly what this is, not moonshine, just well made unaged rye, before aging in wood became fashionable.

    Distilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.

Tasting Notes

"It's very smooth and flavorful for a white rye - with delicate floral notes and surprisingly rounded, creamy finish. It's got some heft to it, too (its fuller body brings to mind a genever), with chewy grain and peppery spice flavors coating the tongue."
