In its distillation methods, the Rye-Barley-Wheat is made traditionally: distilled in hand hammered, direct fire, alembic copper pot stills and only the very best portion of the cuts, the “heart of the hearts” has been kept. However, where the mash bill and barrel program is concerned, tradition gives way to innovation. Years of blending and experimentation made a convincing case that diverse mash bills produce whiskeys that are more evocative and interesting, and the result is this blend of six grain components.
To protect and enhance these delicate cereal flavors, the spirit is aged in used 60 gallon toasted French oak barrels—most of which formerly held Pinot Noir—rather than heavily charred new oak. These barrels contribute weight and depth to the spirit without erasing or obscuring the character of the grain.
