Coppersea Raw Rye Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1254335

Coppersea is a small farm distillery located in New York's Hudson Valley that uses only 100% locally sourced ingredients to produce its incredible spirits. Whereas we've seen similarly minded micro-distillers in the market before, never have we tasted spirits quite this phenomenal from a distillery doing everything by hand. 100% of their malting is done in-house using the traditional floor-malting method. The distillery has its own 75 acre farm that is certified organic and provides their production with a percentage of their rye, while the rest is sourced from local farmers nearby. Unaged and untempered, this is a throwback whiskey pure and simple; an example of what real New York rye might have tasted like in the 19th century. As distiller and founder Christopher Briar Williams told us recently, "I love the weird idiosyncrasies of history. I'm a student of history. At some point there was a culinary agricultural process where someone decided to increase the scale of production. I'm interested in what has been lost."

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

New York

- Grape production is a significant part of this North Eastern state's agricultural economy. New York produces more wine than any other state in the US, with the exception of California. The wine market in New York City is also one of the world's most competitive, and this has inspired the growth of many small, private wineries throughout the state's producing regions (Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, and the Hudson River). Another interesting development is the introduction of an entirely new region along the eastern end of Long Island.
