Prohibition era Rye.

Journeyman Distillery is located in a 19th century corset and buggy whip factory in Three Oaks, Michigan. E.K. Warren, a hardcore prohibitionist in his time founded the company back in 1883 and the building where bottles are distilled, aged and bottled all under one roof hasn’t changed much. Journeyman focuses on distilling handcrafted, organic spirits, from Gin, Vodka to all kinds of Whiskeys.

Last Feather Rye is one of the few wheat heavy rye whiskies on the market; a beautiful balance of the spice of rye and sweetness of wheat – 60% organic rye + 40% organic wheat.  One of three rye whiskies produced at Journeyman to have been served a cease & desist for its original name.  The name Last Feather was adorned to this whiskey after that unfortunate bout with lawyers as we were left with nothing more than the “Last Feather” of its original name.  Every bottle now bares a “RR” as a small tip of the cap back to our original name never to be whispered aloud.
 
Pssst... Only 800 bottles of this first batch out there!

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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
The original owner of the Featherbone factory was a man named E. K. Warren. In addition to making two products (now used in economics classes as the very definition of declining products) — buggy-whips and corsets — Mr. Warren was a die-hard abolitionist.
