Round Top Rye Whiskey
A classic, full-bodied American Rye Whiskey, balancing the spice of the rye with the sweetness of American oak.
Story: With the completion of our distillery expansion in August of 2015, we were able to expand our production capabilities beyond brandy. Working directly with local farmers for our rye and corn we began to mill, cook mash, ferment and distill our first whiskeys. One of our first recipes to be distilled was Round Top Rye. Like its namesake bluff the grains used to make this whiskey are grown within a few minutes from the Stillhouse.
