Florida Black Rye Whiskey
Our first Rye is a big hit. This whiskey is 100% Rye and we use Florida 401 Black Rye – a strain of Rye that only grows in Florida. The Florida heat and sandy soil does something to this Rye and gives it a unique bold flavor unlike any other Rye. The nose starts very floral and grassy and finishes with a little honey on the back of the pallet. To preserve all of the flavor, we bottle our Florida Black Rye Whiskey at 93 PROOF.
What is a Florida Whiskey?
A Florida Whiskey should represent the best that Florida has to offer, and therefore a Florida Whiskey must have the following characteristics:
- Distilled from at least 90% local Florida-grown grains
- Uses only Florida limestone spring water
- Aged in the heat and humidity of Florida
- Bottled unfiltered – to preserve the unique flavors
This combination of factors will produce a distinctly rich and uniquely Florida Whiskey.
