Grand Traverse Distillery Double Barreled Ole George Straight Rye
Grand Traverse Distillery // Michigan, USA
Part of the US's burgeoning grain-to-glass movement, the Great Traverse Distillery in Traverse City, Michigan opened in 2007, using local grains to make a range of distillates. It distills and ages all of its own spirits. The Double Barrel Ole George is a limited-production variant of its standard straight rye whiskey, which is made from a 100% rye mash bill. This offering is transferred into a toasted French oak cask for further maturation; hence, the "Double Barrel" moniker. Non-chill-filtered, it's bottled at 46.5% ABV.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Type#4 charred American white oak and Toasted French Oak
