One of our most popular offerings, Skip Rock Rye Whiskey reflects all that is iconic about this classic American spirit. Derived from locally sourced rye and triticale and then aged for two years in new charred American oak barrels, our rye received a Gold Metal and 93 points by the Beverage Tasting Institute. This noteworthy whiskey is delightful as a key ingredient to classic cocktails like our Walnut Old Fashioned, and also stands alone as an excellent sipping whiskey neat or on the rocks.
"Amber color. Grainy rye flour, pistachio brittle, mango-papaya pie, and chocolate mint cookie aromas and flavors with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a baklava, dried fruit, and round browns spices nuanced finish. Seriously flavorful and elegantly styled with a pure rye grain character that jumps from the glass." - Beverage Tasting Institute
Our rye whiskey is also available in Barrel Proof, which means it is bottled right out of the barrel. This whiskey is not diluted, which gives it a higher alcohol content and an even more robust flavor profile that the Beverage Tasting Institute calls, "A powerfully delicious rye that is contemplative sipper and will shine in cocktails."
