An American Whiskey that builds on the Canadian style ― with style.

You know how you get all these great ideas when you're hanging out over drinks with your buddies? The kind of ideas that involve quitting your boring old day job and reaching for something greater? Most of those grand schemes never see the light of day. The one that came to a group of friends in the heart of Houston, Texas, became Yellow Rose Distilling. The first legal Whiskey distillery in Houston became operational in 2010, named after a folk heroine and nestled smack dab in the middle of the city. Since the launch of their first product in 2012, their juice has brought home several awards, with Yellow Rose opening a tasting room and expanding considerably over the years.

Their Premium American Whiskey expression takes its cues from Canadian Whisky. With a higher Bourbon content, this 80-proof pot-distilled blend is bursting with flavor and has garnered several (Double) Gold awards. Light, fruity, pleasantly sweet, and smooth, it's the sort of Whiskey one sips on the porch as the sun slowly sets over the horizon. Southern charm and rustic cowboy style, they say. We say cheers to that.

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.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
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.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash 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.
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.
