McKenzie Single Barrel Cask Strength Wheated Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1257562

It might seem like an odd choice, putting a distillery in the middle of a wine region. But if you think about it, it makes sense. For one thing, the folks at Finger Lakes Distillery have immediate access to the crop of one of the best grape-growing regions in the country. They even have their own vineyard in front of the distillery. The Finger Lakes region is also home to quite a few small farms, from which they get their corn, rye, barley, and the other grains and fruits that they use to make their premium spirits. Finger Lakes Distilling is a NYS Farm Distillery, which means that they're a small operation making a handcrafted product. It also means they're able to devote all their attention to everything they make; they don't take any shortcuts. Their flavored vodkas and liqueurs are made in the traditional manner, by soaking real fruits in the spirit. They don't add extracts or synthetic flavoring to speed up the process. Their whiskies rest in oak barrels for as long as they need to, until they mature into the rich aged spirit that they offer with pride. This is their first cask strength single barrel to make it out to CA and a wheated bourbon at that. Big bold and full of character, this is definitely their most intriguing product and pretty solid effort from this little upstart. This is bourbon's mashbill is 70%, 20% wheat, and 10% malt. Bottled at around 4 years of age and 110.7 proof.

Country:

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.

Sub-Region:

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.
