New York Distilling Co. Straight Rye
Not Your Grandma’s Rye… Maybe Your Great Grandma’s
This single cask comes from New York Distilling Co. located in the heart of Brooklyn (with an additional distillery location upstate), NYDC is one of the country’s first urban distilleries and a champion of the rebirth of both gin and rye whiskey in the Empire State.
This cask is sweet and aromatic. It evokes chocolate-covered Turkish delight. Unlike our apple brandy cask-finished release from New York Distilling Co., this is a straight rye whiskey without a finish. Aged for four years in a 53-gallon new American oak cask, it balances robust rye spice with notes of oak and chocolate. A truly distinctive cold-climate rye whiskey.
