A complex fermentation and triple-wood aging develops a deep and complex Rye Whisky fit for the White House.

Back during the dark days of Prohibition, the North Fork of Long Island was a sparsely-populated region of farms dotted along a jagged coastline of hidden bays — perfect for bootlegging. Today, the farms are still there — as they have been for nearly two hundred years. But since 2007 it has also been the location of Long Island Spirits. And those local farms provide all the grains, potatoes, and produce they need to make a full line of field-to-glass Spirits.

Rough Rider Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye is crafted from 93% rye and 7% malted barley — so you know it’s got some punch. Interestingly, they use a carefully-prepared combination of yeasts for a slow fermentation and specific flavor profile. It is technically aged three times. It spends a minimum of one year in new oak, three months in ex-Bourbon barrels, and six months in barrels that previously used to age their Pine Barrens Single Malt. All of that develops a deep and complex profile. And at 45% ABV, you will able to appreciate the effort with abandon.

Smartass Corner:
The famous US President Teddy Roosevelt was from Long Island. He founded the first United States Voluntary Calvary — nicknamed the "Rough Riders." And after an assassination attempt failed — the bullet stuck his eyeglass case and written campaign speech only penetrating an inch into his chest — he quipped, "It takes more than that to kill a bull moose!"

Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
