Jazz and Rye from Big Apple.
Widow Jane is a Spirit-lovin’ booze-makin’ Brooklynite. The distillery carries the name of a nearby Rosendale mine that’s the source of crystal-clean agua that comprises the DNA of every Jane’s Spirit – and back in the day, the limestone that came out of that place built the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. And the water isn’t the only thing sourced locally – all the grains come from the nearby farms. Eco-friendly booze, baby!
The products that come out of Widow Jane are winning awards left and right, so they must be doing something right. Rye is a sweet thing when it comes fresh from the still and it’s the barrel that brings the wonderful spiciness. Widow Jane has a trick where new oak and applewood staves are placed inside barrels that used to hold 10YO Bourbon. The result of this wonderful combo is nothing short of a symphonic apple medley. A Big Apple Spirit that’s bold and flavorful with apple notes (obvs) and cool late-night smoke-filled tobacco vibe.
It just yearns for some jazz tunes, this one.
