Description

Gunpowder Rye Whiskey

A Maryland-style rye (made using only rye and barley — no corn in the mash), Gunpowder Rye Whiskey is distilled in Portland, Maine. The rye and barley used are locally-sourced from nearby Maine farmers, and the whiskey is aged for at least a year in new American oak barrels. The barrels are stacked on racks found by Wight in the long-shuttered rickhouse of the Sherwood Distillery — the same racks used by Wight's great-great-great grandfather.

Gunpowder Rye Whiskey is a full-bodied rye with a warm and spicy toasted malt flavor profile. The notes of spice are complemented with sweeter notes of toffee, vanilla and creamy chocolate and lead to a finish that is long and luxurious, with a final touch of cocoa. Gunpowder Rye earned the Gold Medal from the Beverage Testing Institute, which called it "very tasty."
