Coppersea Excelsior New York Hudson Valley Straight Empire Rye Whiskey
Our Empire Straight Rye is made exclusively from Hudson Valley Rye and Barley. And of course, Empire Rye is also an Empire Rye! As with all of Coppersea’s “Heritage Methods Distilled” products, we mash Empire Rye in open-top fermenters for additional local terroir, twice-distill in True Fire Copper, direct-fired simple alembic stills, and barrel age our spirits at the ultra-low proof of 105.
TASTING NOTES: Initial nose of cedar, orange marmalade, cacao nibs opens to the broader palate on caramel, cherries, and cinnamon with a long finish of pecans, malted milk balls and campfire.
TO SERVE: In classic rye cocktails, straight over ice or neat.
DISTILLATION: Mashbill of 80% raw rye, 20% malted barley. Bottled at 96 proof / 48% ABV
