Old Potrero Straight Rye
Anchor Distilling // California, USA
Anchor Distilling is located at the top of San Francisco's Potrero Hill, hence the name (though it's also made in a copper pot still.) It's made with 100% rye, in the tradition of the first American whiskeys before the dawn of bourbon.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"A very weighty and viscous whiskey. Almost has the feel of aged genever, rather than most ryes on the market. Soft, homey flavors of sugar cookies (vanilla, baking spices) and ginger, but then a funky whiff of sweet tobacco smoke, sage and brine."
