With our fellow whiskey enthusiasts in mind, we selected this individual barrel of Laws San Luis Valley Straight Rye to be bottled at Cask Strength due to its noteworthy character and complex flavors. Our Laws San Luis Valley Straight Rye is born at 7,400 feet above sea level in Colorado's San Luis Valley on the Cody Family farm which has been cultivating this low yield, semi-wild rye grain since the 1930's. Using our traditional, labor intensive distilling technique we bring this grain's unique, individual character to life while our open-air, on-grain sour mash process adds the soulful complexity that is a hallmark of all our whiskey. Aged for a minimum of three years in our rarified thin air, this rye is luxurious in texture and generous in perfume. In our pursuit of terroir-driven, unapologetic whiskey, we found this individual barrel to be definitive of what originally drew us to this semi-wild rye and have preserved that richness by bottling this single barrel expression at its natural cask strength.
