Journeyman Distillery Last Feather Rye...$43.99This bottle defines heritage; during prohibition, people made rye: it survived. The first batch of this rye was made in Chicago; eventually, production was moved to the Featherbone building, but the history of the spirit is important: lasting.
Distiller Comments: In the summer of 2010, I spent a period of time training in Chicago at Koval Distillery (located in the Ravenswood neighborhood), learning the trade but also putting rye whiskey in barrels. That time was invaluable in terms of education, but it also allowed Journeyman Distillery the opportunity to have a wonderfully aged rye whiskey to bottle for opening day.
Product Information: These days we distill our rye at our Three Oaks distillery using the same recipe we perfected back in Chicago. The 90-proof whiskey is made from a blend of Midwestern rye and wheat with just a touch of barley added to round out the flavor. The whiskey matures in new white oak barrels where it develops its signature flavor. Last Feather Rye is a fruit-forward whiskey that finishes with a gentle crescendo of spice and pepper from the rye.
