97% Michigan-grown rye and 3% specialty malted barley make up the mash bill of this Detroit-made rye. Made on a small copper pot-still in an old slaughterhouse in Eastern Market with the organic rye grown in Eaton County, Michigan. Produced in small batches which for them means 5-6 barrels per batch. Aged in charred American white oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

"Warm amber in color with the bouquet full of buttery toffee, sharp rye spice, and caramel. The sharpness carries over into the palate with notes of burnt vanilla sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and white pepper. This rye finishes with warm baking spice. A young, but well-balanced rye. "
