Drumlin Champlain Valley Rye
Our Drumlin Rye is the perfect expression of the terroir of our warm and fertile valley. Every bit of rye in the spirit is grown within 25 miles of the distillery, and we use rye and only rye to create a rich, peppery, complex spirit.
Production: We start with a mash of 100% rye — no barley, no other grains — which we know is a little extra work but results in stronger, more vibrant flavor. Double distilled, it is then aged in new American oak barrels for at least three years. We make just a dozen barrels a year.
Nose: Citrus, raisins, caramel, spice, a hint of vanilla.
Palate: Hints of toffee, notes of dark fruit, stone fruit, pepper, rye bread, spices and cinnamon. Quite a bit of heat from the high proof, but it is a clean heat. Finish is fruity and earthy with a hint of smoke, and a lingering and smooth finish.
