Our lovely 100% rye spirit is aged it in new Minnesota white oak casks for a period of just under two years, yielding a very special rye whisky! The hardest of all whiskeys to produce, rye whisky is an old time favorite that is new once again. It has a delicious woody taste, with notes of caramel, rich butter toffee, and just a hint of lemon in the nose. Awarded silver medals at the 2011 American Distilling Institute Whiskey Competition, the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition and the Beverage Testing Institute, Catoctin Creek Organic Roundstone Ryeå¨ is one of the few organic whiskeys in the entire world. Roundstone Rye is a superb sipping whisky, a great mixer in Manhattans, or any recipe calling for Canadian or rye whisky. Delicious mixed, on the rocks, or neat. Try some this evening!
For this modern classic, we‰۪ve selected casks previously inhabited by Quady Winery‰۪s Vya Sweet Vermouth to create an amazing double finish rye. The process takes our flagship rye (already aged a minimum of 6 months) and ages it a second time in select vermouth barrels for an additional 3 months ‰ÛÓ merging the warm, balanced flavors of American vermouth with our smooth, spicy rye to deliver an exceptional nose with a distinctive taste and character all its own.
Pre-Prohibition American rye whiskey involved two different styles. The first, Pennslyvania rye (known sometimes as Monongahela-style) is generally spicy, dry, and heavily oaked. Maryland rye, by contrast, is fruity, floral, and less agressive. Leopold Bros. Maryland-Style Rye Whiskey achieves this unique flavor profile by hand selecting a variety of yeast strains to use in our fermentation process, paying homage to a lost style of whiskey that hasnt been distilled in the United States in decades. In keeping with tradition, the rye whiskey is barreled at 98 proof, enabling the flavors to develop in our charred American oak barrels. Seasonal Release.
This release was distilled in a small copper pot still at our distillery on San Francisco‰۪s Potrero Hill, from a mash of 100% rye malt. Rye was the grain of choice for America‰۪s first distillers, and using a mash of 100% rye malt produces a uniquely American whiskey.
Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey refuses to be forgotten. First produced in Maryland in the 1890s, the brand, along with the rest of the once-booming Maryland Rye industry, was shuttered by prohibition. The brand reemerged after prohibition and became the last standing Maryland Rye, as the rest of the industry’s production had ceased. Now produced in Kentucky from extra-aged barrels stored in prime warehouse locations, Heaven Hill keeps this historic Maryland mark alive with this award-winning six year old, 110 proof offering.
