For Rye lovers.
Taconic distillery calls Hudson Valley home. Surrounded by historic landmarks and bountiful farms, the Coughlin family set up shop in 2010, converting a portion of Laured Beef Farms into Rolling Hills. The whopping 113-acre farm proved to be a great segue into the local, Duchess County agribusiness market.
Hudson Valley is a fertile area in terms of gastro-culture. A richly historical, famed Wine-producing region, it is also home to a world-class culinary institute. Taconic prides itself on preserving a storied Bourbon Whiskey tradition, from George and Martha Washington’s home, to the Great Estates of the Vanderbilt's, Roosevelt's and Rockefeller's, “Bourbon Whiskey has been savored for generations.”
These Taconic hippies like their Spirits non-chill filtered and unadulterated to retain the Whiskeys true nature. They distill their Whiskeys below 160 proof and age them in Coopers Select, Char #3 new oak barrels made by the Independent Stave Company.
Taconic Cask Strength Straight Rye Whiskey is an uncharacteristically smooth, sweet, young rye Whiskey. The strength does not overshadow its flavors. A touch of limestone rich, artisanal water imparts a layer of buttery sweetness to the palate. A definite Rye lovers drink, with its bold, warm, spicy notes. This cask strength Whiskey is perfect neat or as a cocktail base.
