Rye Whiskey

Made exclusively from ingredients grown in New England and aged in Northern oak barrels. A mash of 80% unmalted rye and 20% malted barley is double distilled in pot stills to produce complex notes of fresh grass, mild spice, brine, and a strong, long rye finish.

Why is there sediment in my bottle? We do not chill-filter any of our spirits. This means they have the full flavor and mouthfeel of their class. As a result, Rye Whiskey will occasionally exude a cloudy or hazy appearance, or sediment may be visible. Have no fear, this is completely natural.

Where to find it Rye Whiskey is taking a long rest in barrels and is unavailable for purchase at this time. Release coming late 2024.

Why the Turkey Vulture?

We assigned birds of prey to all of our Whiskeys because just as these creatures are at the top of the food chain, craft Whiskey is known to be at the top of the spirits class. The Turkey Vulture, also called the Turkey Buzzard, is common in Massachusetts. Though Turkey Vultures appear black from a distance, they’re actually dark brown with a featherless redhead and pale bill up close. The popularity and consumption of Rye Whiskey is increasing, but each distiller’s take on it is unique. Our exclusive version is made using 100% northeast grains, and aged in northern oak barrels in the ever changing climates of New England. A premium New England spirit for a strong, superior American bird.
