WHEAT-hero

WHEAT

WHEAT

With a 100% wheat mash bill, our Wheat Whiskey is the softest of our three expressions and unique to any other American style whiskey on the market. Our wheat produces a buttery, savory, and smooth spirit that proves to be an excellent introductory whiskey.

375ml: $42.19; 750ml: $84.29
TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Port, hint of oak, honey, and caramel notes

PALATE: Velvet texture, sweet but not cloying (given the lack of corn), perfumed notes of rose petals

FINISH: Orange peels, herbaceous, and honeyed with a long lasting mouth feel

BOURBON-hero

BOURBON

BOURBON

Our Bourbon is a one of a kind, 100% corn mash bill. It’s the most traditional of our house expressions, boasting a beautiful midpoint balance of sweetness that lies somewhere between the soft signature of the Wheat and the sharp spice of the Rye.

TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Vanilla, chalk, corn, and toast

PALATE: Char, pencil shavings, coffee, and pecan with a medium to full body

FINISH: Tobacco leaf transitioning into a lingering sweet cherry finish

RYE-hero

RYE

RYE

In the crowded world of “High Ryes” on the market,we are proud to offer the highest with a 100% rye mash bill. Sourced from just outside Richmond’s city limits, our rye provides an intense, sharply spiced profile that is not too sweet.

375ml: $42.19; 750ml: $84.29
TASTING NOTES:

NOSE: Honey and crème brulee, rye spice and yeast,some orange peel/citrus tones

PALATE: Sweet notes of dark chocolate, anise, spicy with pepper

FINISH: Resolves into a dry finish leaving cola and molasses on the tongue, classic rye shortstop

GHOST BOTTLES

GHOST BOTTLES

We call this series Ghost Bottles because when we first started, we filled a spare barrel with any overage of our runs. Then we parked the barrel and forgot about it. For four years.

When we rediscovered the barrel in the back of the warehouse, we were met with an intense, concentrated, and breathtaking whiskey. We now do this regularly. Every batch is different. Here and then gone. Like a ghost.

COLLABS-hero

COLLAB SERIES

ARDENT DISTILLED IPA

We worked with local brewery, Ardent Craft Ales to form our first ever collaboration whiskey. We distilled the grain from an Ardent IPA and finished it in our bourbon barrels. We were met with a flavor profile that was citrusy, floral, hoppy and completely unique.

375ml: $64.99

HARDYWOOD GINGERBREAD STOUT

MAISON DE CUIVRE

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery let us experiment with their wildly popular Gingerbread Stout. We took the stout and aged it with the same technique we use for our bourbon. The result was unlike any other spirit available. People called it “Christmas in a glass,” with subtle hints of the base beer, locally produced ginger, clove and honey.

375ml: $79.99

HOLLAND’S SERIES

HOLLAND'S GHOST WAS A CREATIVE COLLABORATION WITH MAC MACORMICK, “RICHMOND'S WHISKEY GODFATHER," WHERE HE REQUESTED WE RECREATE AN ICONIC WHISKEY, WHICH IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. USING OUR SINGLE GRAIN MASH BILL WHISKIES, WE WERE ABLE TO NEARLY NAIL THE RECIPE HE WAS SEEKING, BUT SOMETHING WAS STILL MISSING. BARLEY.
OUR GREAT FRIENDS AT ARDENT CRAFT ALES WERE AGING A HEAVENLY STOUT BEER IN A BOURBON BARREL. ONCE THEY’D BOTTLED THEIR ALE, WE POURED FULLY-AGED WHISKEY INTO THAT BARREL TO FINISH FOR ANOTHER 6-8 MONTHS.
