Widow Jane. An interesting name and an even more interesting distillery.
The name comes from the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale, New York, the distillery comes out of Red Hook, Brooklyn. All the Widow Jane products are distilled and proofed with water from the limestone caves of the aforementioned mine. The special chemical properties of the water give their artisan Spirits the base to really do their own thing.
Widow Jane grows their own non-GMO corn on farms in Rosendale and Hurley. The products that come out of Widow Jane are winning awards left and right, so they must be doing something right.
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.
