A no-BS Single Malt the Rogue way.

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!

It's reassuring to know that their Single Malt Whiskey is just as true to their from-scratch mindset as their other expressions. Perhaps the most serious of the bunch, it's pot distilled in small batches from malted two row that's 10% smoked with alder and cherry wood. As you'd expect, the wash is brewed in their brewery, basically a stone's throw away from the distillery. It then spends at least 5 years in new American Oak barrels. For all you cooperage nerds: They stop short of an alligator char, opting for a cool no. 3.

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.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
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.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
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.
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.
