Product Description

Named after the fastest growing Redwood in the world, Emerald Giant is a fan favorite in the Rye world. We started with a mash-bill of 95% premium rye and aged it for over 3 years in new charred oak barrels. Spicy with an exceptionally smooth finish, it is a great choice in your classic whiskey cocktails. Natural rye aroma followed by a mix of brown sugar and cinnamon with a faint hint of pepper. On the palate, there is an unparalleled spice complexity with smooth rye notes. A hint of honey and orange peel becomes peppery with a lingering cinnamon finish. Mash Bill: 95% Rye, 5% Malt Barley

    A very rich and non traditional rye. Lots of chocolaty tones and caramel.

    A lighter rye in body, it nevertheless has a wonderful balanced spiciness to it, yet with very smooth finish with notes of orange peel and cinnamon. Makes both a delicious Old Fashioned and Manhattan, as well as being one of the few eyes I enjoy drinking on the rocks with just a splash of water.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
