Distillery After Dark 10/4
Our October Distillery After Dark presentation will feature an in-depth look at the creation of our newest spirit release: Graverobber: Unholy Rye
We first tame the fiery young spirit by putting it to rest for three years in oak, which adds smoky layers of charred oak and burnt wood sugar. Then we blend in syrup from ancient maple trees in a forgotten cemetery. The result is a truly sinister blend, as the haunted maple syrup makes the spice-rich young rye spirit devilishly drinkable. The aromas of cinnamon and dried orange peel dominate, followed by rye cracker and a hint of maple. The taste is full-bodied, sweet maple syrup up front, which soothes the burn from the peppery rye whiskey, giving way to a warm comforting flavor and a long finish.
