Despite the name, this guy is alive and kickin'!

The Rogue story begins with three friends opening a small craft brewery in 1988. They were searching for a proper place when founder Jack Joyce found himself stuck in an epic snow storm in Newport. There he ran into local legend "Mo" Niemi, famous for her clam chowder restaurant chain. One thing led to another and Rogue found its new home in the nice lady's commercial building, so long as he promised he'd keep an oldschool black & white photo of her sitting naked in a bath tub stuck right above the bar at all times. You can't make this stuff up. But ales and lagers weren't enough, no sir. They soon branched out and started distilling Whiskey and Gin as well. These guys aren't playing when they call their stuff "handcrafted." They grow their own grains, brew and distill as well as age and bottle everything on their own. They even have their own cooperage!

The dudes at Rogue are perhaps most known for their Dead Guy Ale and this Whiskey is its distant, boozier cousin. It's just as true to their from-scratch mindset as the rest of their lineup, though. Dead Guy Whiskey, then, is based on the aforementioned notorious ale's wort, and if you ask us, this is the way to use it. As you'd expect, the wash is brewed in their next-door brewery. It's then pot-distilled, after which it spends at least 2 years in new American Oak barrels. What comes out after a bit of necromancy is a pretty lively fella — for a dead guy!

is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
