In an attempt to bypass some of the hurdles faced by new craft distilleries, Hillrock’s Dave Pickerell has implemented the solera system of aging, which promotes a commingling in barrels of older (outsourced from MGP) and younger spirits (distilled at Hillrock) then finished in 20 year-old oloroso sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

"On the nose: There are certain notes here that you would expect to find like young heat, aged rye spice with some nice hints of honey, vanilla and dried fruits. The palate has more young heat, rye spice, stone fruits and a caramel/toffee taste. Finish is quick/medium with more caramel, rye spice, and fruit related sweetness coming through. "
