Corbin Cash Merced Rye Whiskey came about after the Souza family realized that they needed to grow a nitrogen-fixing crop to fertilize the soil in-between harvest of sweet potatoes, the main product of the family farm. Not only does the Merced rye fertilize the soil, it's also the only grain used to produce this rye whiskey. The rye is grown, harvested, fermented and distilled all on the Souza family farm. After aging for almost 4 years in custom-charred white oak barrels from Missouri, the whiskey is bottled at 45% abv. Availability seems to be limited to California at the moment.

Tasting Notes

"Corbin Cash delivers a deliciously spicy whiskey with their Merced Rye. With a 100% mashbill, that's not surprising. That spice is very nicely balanced by sweet notes of butterscotch and vanilla, with secondary hints of dark chocolate and stone fruit. It's hard to know if the Merced rye varietal is what sets this whiskey apart, but it's a quality spirit; rounded enough for sipping but with an assertiveness to show well in cocktails. "
