Rye Whiskey
New York, United States

Product description

In August 1775, Alexander Hamilton’s Hearts of Oak militia orchestrated a daring raid on lower Manhattan. Under fire from HMS Asia they seized and repurposed the battery of British cannons, thereafter forming America’s first artillery company. Fort Hamilton Rye Whiskey, from Alex Clark Spirits, is created in the spirit of that revolution. Fort Hamilton Rye is a traditional North-Eastern American style rye which has no corn in the mash. It is made purely with rye, malted barley, yeast and water to achieve a rich, full and robust flavor. The rye is barreled at a low proof for a smoother profile that emphasizes the rye grain over the barrel. It is non-chill filtered & aged in heavily charred new American white oak barrels on the Brooklyn waterfront. As is tradition for Eastern ryes, the warehouse is heated in winter to keep the aging process moving. Entering barrel at 120 proof and aged for an average of 3 years, Fort Hamilton ‘Double Barrel’ is a marriage of 25% NY Rye & 75% Rye from Indiana. Post aging, these spirits are blended together for consistency of flavor profile and proofed down to 46% before bottling. Fort Hamilton ‘Double Barrel’ is non-chilled filtered, leading to additional texture and complexity. Perfect for sipping and priced for mixing, ‘Double Barrel’ is a versatile rye whiskey and a welcome addition to the Fort Hamilton brand.
