Rye never became trendy in Western New York. It‚Äôs always been beloved here. We start with New York State corn and rye and then age this whiskey in open-air-seasoned Canton Spirit white oak barrels with a #4 char. The result is a smooth butterscotch and oak flavor with a spicy, pepper nose and a classic NY rye peppery finish. and the finished product is Southern Tier Distilling Rye Whiskey.
