A surprisingly good 100% Rye Whiskey — from Germany — made in a historic distillery.

About forty miles southeast of Berlin is located a lovely park called the Spreewald — a wetland reserve criss-crossed with canals and marshes fed by the Spree River. This is also home to the oldest distillery in Germany — the Spreewald Distillery. Three friends who owned a media agency together drove down to sample Whiskey there in 2015, and when the then-owner mentioned that he was looking for a successor, they sold their agency and launched a new dream. After significant updates and a new Whiskey still, they began to release their signature Spirits under the Stork Club brand.

Stork Club Straight Rye Whiskey is their heart and soul and most awarded Spirit to date with four Gold and Double Gold Medals so far. It is made from local German rye and malted rye — so you will taste only the pure grain. It has been aged in a combination of casks — American oak, Napoleon oak, ex-White Wine, and ex-Sherry. The result is a surprisingly great Rye Whiskey at 45% ABV in the old American style, but with decidedly European aging.

Ratings & Reviews
Yaser
Yaser,
Found this fairly inoffensive, but with only a touch of the rye spice I look for in a Rye. Fine neat or in a NY Sour, but not great either.
 
Mark
Mark,
This is one of the worst ryes I've ever drunk ( (or any other whisk(e)y for that matter). It tastes like a combination of drinking a Bandaid and a bad Google translation of rye. It's supposed to be a "cocktail" rye, but the wretchedness overpowers anything I've made apart from a New York Sour (somehow the spoon of wine slightly neutralizes it).
 
Chance
Chance,
My first atste of rye. On the nose it actaully reminds me of a bourbon, sweet caramel and vanilla with a touch of baking spice. On the pallate it is not so much caramel as vanilla buttercream icing, then lots of peppery spice and finally a big hit of seeds and rye bread that lingers into the finish. Kind of makes me wonder what a rye cake would taste like, either that or buttering rye bread with icing.
