In the heart of Red Hook, Brooklyn sits the artisanal Widow Jane distillery. The distillery carries the name of a nearby mine that’s the source of crystal-clean water that comprises the DNA of every Jane’s Spirit.
This self-renewing stream of water is filtered naturally through limestone, collecting in massive underground caverns. This gives the water an unusually high mineral content which gives Widow Jane Bourbons a natural flavor.
Hand made in ultra small batches using the richest & rarest straight Bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, all the grains used in production are also sourced from nearby farms. At the heart of their production is their pot still and unusual serial continuous distillation columns.
Designed by their founder these stills develop a distinctive flavor in Whiskey enhancing the subtleties of the individual corn varietals and grains used in production. Their 10-year old Small Batch Whiskey earned a gold medal at the 2018 World Whiskies Awards.
