A bright and youthful express of Rye Whiskey finished in Port wood and bottle hot at 50% ABV.

In 2008, Stephen Gould and Karen Knight founded Golden Moon Distillery in Golden, Colorado. Stephen had amassed a world-class collection of antique books on Spirits and the art of distilling and they shared a dream to bring this knowledge to life — creating premium, hand-crafted Spirits. In twelve years that distillery has amassed dozens of awards recognizing distilling excellence and their success creating a wind range of Whiskies, Spirits, and Liqueurs.

Gun Fighter Double Cask Rye is a spicy and youthful exclamation point. The mash bill is 60% rye, 34% corn, and 6% malted barley. This Spirit is a combination of a variety of ages. The youngest Rye in the bottle is aged six months, but reports are that the average age in two years. But just like its sister Bourbon all of the Spirits are married and finished in Port casks made of French oak. It’s bottled hot at a solid 50% ABV — strong enough for the Wild West and a solid contender for your next Manhattan.

Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
The distillery currently has four antique stills, dating from the early to mid 1900s.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
