AFTER AGING 13 YEARS in new charred American oak barrels, this is a master distiller's 'robust cut' of 100% rye whiskey from doubled pot stills, standing at 101.3 proof. The quality of the farm-sourced rye grain, artisanal distillation process, and the depth and robust character of a rye aged for 13 years result in an inherently rare and limited offering — a real whiskeyman's whiskey.
"This remarkable expression has been patiently aged for 13 years in new charred American Oak Barrels.  Utilizing 100% Rye Grain.  This LIMITED RELEASE is an extraordinarily rich and uncommon Straight Rye Whiskey with flavor notes that will entice the palate with complex, unified notes, resembling salted caramel, toffee winter spice and tobacco.  Distilled in copper pot stills, and featuring a masterful distillers robust cut, Lock, Stock and Barrel provides a positively full bodied character.  This is an honest resolut:  "Whiskeyman's Whiskey"

Our whiskey is Lock Stock & Barrel 13 Year Straight Rye Whiskey.

Back in 2007-8, after our founder, Robert Cooper, launched St-Germain, he had a recurring nightmare that he would be forever known as the guy who made the flower liqueur. He pursued his longtime passion for rye whiskey, what he (and many others) consider the original American spirit. This search culminated in a grand discovery of old rye whiskey stocks in the Great White North - rye whiskey in new charred American Oak at Alberta Distilleries (ADL) that is now 13 years old. While he secured these barrels well in advance of anyone else to pursue ADL, we knew that we would be rewarded for tasting regularly through the aging process and tipping the barrels at the optimal time. These really are the honey barrels, the best expression of this hearty northern rye.

We wanted a real whiskeyman's whiskey - 100% rye grain, distilled in copper pot stills, with a master distiller's robust cut. Standing at 101.3 proof, Lock Stock & Barrel features complex but unified notes, resembling salted caramel, toffee, winter spice, and tobacco. We can't wait for you to try it, and I sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as we do." - Joen with Cooper's Spirits
