Dark Horse Distillery is based in Lenexa, KS (outside of Kansas City), opened in 2010. Their whiskeys are produced in a 500-gallon copper hybrid still they lovingly nicknamed “Chester Copperpot.” This is a 100% rye, the name a reference to America “reuniting” with its native spirit, which was all but wiped out during Prohibition.

Tasting Notes

"A bold, spicy rye that’s very weighty on the tongue. Dry, cereal grain flavors (think Kashi) with warm, toasty flavors and an odd buttery note. It does ends a bit astringent. "
