A fresh Rye Whiskey aged with pecan wood chips for a spicy praline flavor profile. 

John Sharp and his son Jimmy ran a business in Montgomery, Alabama. But that business required a lot of travel. When Jimmy’s daughter Lily was born in 2014, they knew they had to start something different. They founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika and named it after John’s father. They make a Rum, Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey.

Most of the time, when you hear "double wood" you think of two barrels. But John Emerald has a bit of a different take on it for their Purveyor’s Series. In the case of John Emerald Purveyor’s Series Double Wood Rye, it means aging in new American oak as you would expect, but the barrel has been filled with charred pecan wood chips. The combination of wood influences pops out a New Orleans style praline flavor to the Spirit.

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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
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.
