Minneapolis-based Tattersall Distilling has announced the launch of its Port Wine Barreled Straight Rye Whiskey. This limited-release spirit is distilled from 100% Minnesota-grown Straight Rye, which is first aged in new, charred white oak barrels for two years. The whiskey is then aged for an additional two years in both used tawny and ruby port barrels before being blended and bottled.
“We’ve been excited about this whiskey for a while now, and it’s been well worth the wait,” said Jon Kreidler, founder and chief officer of Tattersall Distilling, in a press release. “The port barrels play really well with our rye, adding some sweetness and depth and giving it a really unique taste profile. This is a great sipper but also makes an incredible Manhattan.”
Bottled at 100 proof, Tattersall Port Wine Barreled Rye is a perfect blend of both barrels. The result is rich and complex with notes of dried stone fruit complemented by tobacco and a delightful candied orange finish. Sip it neat or on the rocks for the ultimate nightcap or celebratory drink.
Details include: * 100 proof, 50% ABV* $49.99, 750ml bottles
Bottles can be purchased at select retailers throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin, found here: https://tattersalldistilling.com/tattersall-finder/. There are currently just 3,000 bottles available, with more barrels aging for future releases.
