The General Profile
and Common Denominators
Rich amber color, vanilla, and maple aroma with hint of caramel, costard, and dried plums sustained by new wood, walnuts, and molasses.
The spicy quintet of cinnamon, caramel, leather, clove, and nougat leads the palate loud and full while vanilla, dried fruits, and ripe banana are completing each other in the background.
A clean earthy sensation add balance to a glimpse of toasted oak to give a fresh and smooth finish.
There is no better example to describe the evolution of the craft distiller movement than realizing what happened in the American Rye Whiskey phenomenon.
Craft distillers, clearly led by enlightened masters, have managed to change the Rye Whiskey reputation to become the No.1 choice of whiskey lovers in the world. It’s nice to see this when it happens, in the arts it’s called Renaissance.
In our case, in addition to the use of the local high quality winter rye and the fantastic characteristics of the Catskill water, the sour mash and adding a small amount of malted rye have translated our desired goal into pleasant reality.
The Alton Rye, colonial craftmanship and new-age techniques embracing tradition and innovation.
