The water used to create this whiskey comes from the Widow Jane mine in Rosendale, New York which provided stone for the Statue of Liberty's pedestal, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building. Rosendale Limestone possesses an even higher ratio of beneficial minerals than that found in Kentucky and its sparkling waters are as pure as its namesake, the Widow Jane.
When rye comes off the still it is sweet, grassy, and floral. Its traditional spicy characteristics all come from the barrel. With this whiskey, our goal was to lightly oak the rye distillate in our 7-year bourbon barrels with added fresh oak and applewood staves.
With aromas of cardamom, rum raisin, pineapple, orange peel and sugar cane, this is a very complex rye. Across the palate, vanilla, clover, maple and brown sugar, almond, and apricot flavors lead into a lightly tannic finish with a basswood and white pepper spice. This is a light, tropical summer rye and makes for some great cocktails. A good bitter, or a splash of vermouth or ginger beer goes a long way (from the distiller)
