Description

Breuckelen 77 Local Rye & Corn Whiskey

Breuckelen 77 Local Rye & Corn Whiskey is crafted by milling a mash of 90% rye and 10% corn. The grains, which are sourced from local farmers, are milled inside a mixer traditionally reserved for concrete. After milling and mashing the grains, Estabrooke ferments the mash at the distillery without using any genetically modified yeast. As a result, fermentation is a much more costly, labor-intensive process for Estabrooke. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled inside a 400-liter Ulrich Kothe hybrid copper-pot/column still.

Then, Breuckelen 77 Whiskey is aged in charred, new American oak barrels for a minimum of seven months. "I tried a sip of the first batch before bottling," Brad says. "The whiskey had a buttery smoothness with noticeably spicy flavors; cinnamon and nutmeg came immediately to mind." After aging the whiskey, Brad fills and corks each bottle before sealing it with hot, melted wax.
