Or order Rough Rider online

Rough Rider Happy Warrior Straight Bourbon Whisky...$61.99
We currently have Batch #1Rough Rider Happy Warrior fills fewer than a couple of hundred cases per batch. This straight bourbon whisky is aged for a minimum of four years prior to additional maturation in French Oak casks from local wineries that have been rinsed with high proof brandy. When ideal flavor and balance are achieved, Happy Warrior is bottled straight from cask at 114 proof.
Tasting Notes:  Floral to the nose, with an incredibly smooth and well-rounded sweet flavor. Complex hints of caramel, vanilla and with a wonderful warm finish.

Rough Rider Straight Bourbon Whisky...$32.99 / 750ml
Rough Rider Straight Bourbon Whisky is aged Bourbon with a mash bill of 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% barley aged in new charred American oak barrels.  The magic then begins as the Bourbon takes on a new character and goes through a second maturation in our Reserve Aging process in casks formerly housing Merlot and Chardonnay from renowned Long Island wine estates. These casks are washed with high proof aged Brandy before introducing the Bourbon.
The result is a fine sturdy backbone with a hint of fresh juice, blackberry and currant, along with caramel and burnt sugar with a heady heat on the finish.

Rough Rider Bull Moose Rye Whisky...$32.99 / 750ml
Rough Rider Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye Whisky spends a bit of time maturing in three different specially selected casks that impart distinctive character along the way. The journey begins in New American Oak casks where the Rye Whisky takes shape with its resolute spicy sweet cinnamon flavors. When the time is right, the Rye Whisky is moved to casks that had just held Straight Bourbon, where the flavors of the Rye and Bourbon get to know each other better. When the Rye is done mingling with the Bourbon flavors, it is then moved to its final cask which had just held Pine Barrens Single Malt Whisky. This unique Three Barrel aging method provides Rough Rider Rye with a crisp fruity sweetness on the nose, followed by spice, caramel, vanilla and blackberry on the palate, lauded by a royal symphony of long, warm rye-ness, with a toasty, velvety finish.

Rough Rider Rye Whiskey Cask Strength...$61.99
The Big Stick
121 proof

Our locally harvested winter Rye is the cover crop that is planted on the farm land to maintain the sustainable characteristics of the soils following the harvesting of Long Island’s iconic potatoes. Bottled at Cask Strength, this remarkable Rye reveals its true raw spirit with hints of spice coupled with a touch of malty sweetness, followed by a long warm smooth finish.
