This one is no stranger to Gold medals...
You know how it goes. You go to paint the town red with your friends and then somebody says: “We should totally open a bar.” Or, in this case, a distillery. In 2009, Alex Toomy started distilling moonshine on his farm. In 2010, he opened the Ragged Branch Distillery with his friends Chris Sarpy and Russell Nance. It wasn’t long before the late legendary Master Distiller Dave Pickerell joined them and developed the mash. All Ragged Branch Whiskey is distilled on-site from their own grain. The milling and mashing happen daily based on the methods, entrusted to them by the late Pickerell. The distillation takes place in a custom-built 500-gallon Vendome still. It’s all farm-to-bottle, combined with modern processes and that makes Ragged Branch the award-winning independent distiller we adore so much.
Ragged Branch Double Oaked Wheated Bourbon Whiskey is first aged to a proper Straight Bourbon before it’s moved to a new charred oak barrel. There, it’s aged some more until the all flavors are truly deep and smooth. This means you’re in for a wave of heavy malt, vanilla, dark caramel, and toasted pecans that finish up sweet and buttery with a touch of almond. This is the Gold medal winner at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Savor it slowly, preferably with a few drops of water to really open it up.
