A rich and chocolatey American Single Malt Whiskey in a collector’s edition bottle.

Anchor Brewery was founded in 1896 in San Francisco — surviving the 1906 earthquake, Prohibition era, and several ownership changes. But in 1965 it needed saving once again. Fritz Maytag stepped up to re-create their iconic Anchor Steam beer and, in so doing, is credited with launching the micro-brewery revolution. Fritz did not stop there. In 1993 he launched Anchor Distillery, which quickly expanded to a full line of unique spirits. Fritz sold the business to a pair of seasoned industry veterans and today Anchor produces, imports, and distributes nearly 400 spirits, including their award-winning Westland line of Whiskies.

Westland was one of the pioneers of Single Malt Whiskey made in America. They are celebrating this award-winning signature achievement with a special, signed edition. Our sources tell us that only 200 bottles will be hand-signed by Master Distiller Matt Hofmann. In case you need a reminder, Westland’s American Oak Single Malt Whiskey combines five different malted barleys fermented with Belgian brewer’s yeast. Then it’s aged a minimum of two years in new American oak barrels and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. And that’s the real secret here — they bring a brewer's detailed attention to the grains and yeast on the front end and master distilling craftsmanship on the back end.

Long and complex.

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.
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.
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.
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.
