On July 29th, 2017 we released Batch #1 of our Organic Rye Whiskey. This batch consisted of 1,398 bottles which came from 10 barrels. It was dumped May 9th, 2017 at 18 months and 10 days old.
Long before we opened our doors we formulated a plan to begin laying up whiskey so we didn't have to wait quite so long to get this delicious recipe into the glasses of our customers. While studying distillation science up on Goose Island in Chicago, we formed a relationship with Robert and Mark from Koval Distillery. We contracted to use their facility to finalize our mash bill and begin distilling. We ended up producing 20 thirty gallon barrels.
Those 20 barrels spent 12 month aging in Koval's facility until we had a bonded premise in Jacksonville to ship them do. Once we did, we took shipment of all 20 barrels which then spent the rest of their days with us until they were dumped.
