A true blue American Rye Whiskey made fro 100% rye grain and aged two years in new oak.

Bendistillery is a play on words. The company is located in Bend, Oregon, and they are in the distilling business. Push those two words together and you get Bendistillery economically using a single letter “d.” They proudly claim the title of “America’s Most Award Winning Small Batch Distillery.” Exactly how many awards is that? We stopped counting when we ran out of fingers and toes of everyone in the office at the time. They own and mange three brands for intoxication consumables — Crater lake Spirits, Bend Spirits, and Ablis CBD Infusions. Crater Lake Spirits came first in 1996.

Remember all those awards we were telling you about? Well, this dram is responsible for three of them — even a Double Gold.

Crater Lake Straight American Rye Whiskey is made from 100% rye grain and it’s been aged for two years in new oak with a dark, #4 char and is cut to proof using natural Cascade mountain spring water.

Smartass Corner:
Crater Lake is a large, deep, very pure lake in Oregon formed by a collapsing volcano. It is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc containing twenty major volcanoes and more than 4,000 minor ones stretching from Northern California into Canada.

Appearance / Color
Warm Honey

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma opens with a melange of spices and butter toffee before background notes of orange zest and apple pie make their appearances.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor is nicely balanced between sweet and spice with ground black pepper and pepperoncini mingling over the vanilla, burnt toffee, warm citrus, and menthol notes.

Finish
Taken finish is long, warm, and spicy.
