Corbin Cash California Straight Rye 7 Years Old #2

A Rambunctious Rye Returns

Lost Lantern hand-selected this cask from Corbin Cash Distillery in California’s Central Valley, where the Souza family has grown sweet potatoes for nearly a century. The family has also grown rye for many years, and in 2007, they started distilling it. Their grain-to-glass whiskies reflect the bounty and warmth of one of the world’s great agricultural regions.

This is a true rarity: a hot-climate straight rye whiskey made entirely with estate-grown rye. It was distilled from 100% merced rye and aged for 7 years in a 53-gallon barrel with an unusual level 5 char. It has rich, sweet, bold spice notes, like a carrot cake with walnuts and almond cream.

This is a successor to our first Corbin Cash rye whiskey release, which is probably the most sought-after rye we’ve ever put out. Corbin Cash has very limited availability outside of California, so if you’ve wanted to try their whiskey, now’s your chance!

About Corbin Cash Distillery

The Souza family has been growing sweet potatoes in California’s Central Valley for over 100 years. They’ve been growing rye for just as long as a cover crop. In 2007, David Souza opened Corbin Cash Distillery, named for his son, and began distilling that rye (And yes, they distill sweet potatoes too – for their vodka, gin, and sweet potato liqueur). As a farm distillery, Corbin Cash is one of the only distilleries in the country to grow the vast majority of its raw materials right on-site, including 100% of their rye. Grown, distilled, and matured in the heat of inland California, Corbin Cash’s estate ryes capture the unique terroir of the Central Valley—one of the world’s greatest and most bountiful agricultural regions.
