Sonoma County Distilling rejoices in their grain-to-glass technique, with everything done in house, using alembic pot distillation. This 100% rye (both malted and unmalted) is aged in new, charred oak casks, and is then finished in used casks for mellowing.

Tasting Notes

"Floral, tart and slightly tannic, almost like a green tea with a drop of lemon squeezed in. A light, kind of gossamer style, with honeycomb, pine cone, cedar and sweet spices. Some vanilla, caramel and black pepper in the finish. No age statement, but doesn't taste overly "young" as many upstart whiskeys can."
