This 100% rye starts with traditionally grown rye cultivated exclusively for Woodinville on the Omlin family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grain is mashed, distilled, and barreled in the Woodinville distillery, then trucked back over the Cascade Mountains to their barrel houses, where Central Washington's extreme temperature cycles promote the extraction of natural flavors from the oak. Prior to being coopered, the barrel wood is seasoned in open air, rain, wind, sun, and snow for eighteen months, softening the wood's harsh tannins. It is then slowly toasted and heavily charred to further enrich the wood's desirable flavors. The result of this meticulous process yields a truly hand-crafted whiskey with aromas of cinnamon, clove, and fruit leather, and notes of caramel, wood spice, and honey on the palate with a long, memorable finish.
