The Rough Riders were the first Volunteer Calvary of the United States, led by Teddy Roosevelt during the Spanish-American war in 1898. Rough Rider "The Big Stick," from Long Island Spirits, is a rye whiskey distilled from a mash of 95% Long Island-grown winter rye and 5% malted barley. Champagne yeast is used during its 8-11 day fermentation period. After double-distillation, the whiskey ages for at least a year in 30 gallon barrels made from new American oak. It's bottled at cask strength. Although produced in the US, the label spells "whisky" without the "e."
