Wittenberg Distilling Blue Wing Rye Whiskey....$32.99
45% ABV
Made in Missouri

"My family was in the distilling business in St. Louis from the 1880s until Prohibition put them out of business in 1919. They sold whiskey they made under the name Blue Wing Whiskey. We found a copy of the original front label on the internet and my brother, who is an artist, was able to recreate it for use today.  C.H. Wittenberg Distilling Co. made both a bourbon and a rye. We focused on a rye. This whiskey is a blend of 60% rye, 15% caramelized rye and 25% smoked barley malt. I am collaborating with a small local distillery that makes several other fine spirits, Square One Distillery in Lafayette Square, to make the whiskey. This is a very rare opportunity to bring back this spirit to market." -- William C. Wittenberg, owner
