WHITE RYE

Born on a small farm in Iowa during the Prohibition era of the 1920s, our White Rye was originally created by Lorine Sextro, a clandestine bootlegger operating out of her farmhouse in Templeton. Nearly 100 years on, we continue her legacy by replicating her exact methods for a truly legendary and authentic spirit made using rye grain grown locally.
Made in Carroll, Iowa, Iowa Legendary Rye’s White Rye is amazingly smooth and slightly sweet. This light spirit is bottled straight off the still and would be sure to please vodka lovers. It is nothing like you have ever tasted, unless of course, you were around during Prohibition.

NOTES

Aroma: A mixture of spice, grain and hints of floral sweetness

AGED RYE

Iowa Legendary Rye Aged Rye begins life being distilled in small batches in 26 gallon custom built stills for an authentic historically accurate taste. It then spends 18 months aging in new 15 gallon barrels. When Grandma Sextro was asked in her 90s why she used such a small barrel, her response was, “Have you ever tried to run from the Feds with a 40 gallon barrel?”

NOTES
Appearance: Rich Carmel
Aroma: Soft wood and sweet citrus with a light nuttiness
Taste: Caramel, vanilla and honey with a pinch of spice
Finish: Earthy with a hint of raisin undertones

PRIVATE RESERVE

Fans of our Aged Rye will be sure to love our Private Reserve Rye. Like our White Rye and Aged Rye, it’s made in a historically accurate 26 gallon custom still. It’s then aged in a previously used barrel for eight months and then transferred to a second used barrel for 12 months. The result is an extra level of smoothness usually found in a much more mature spirit.

NOTES
Appearance: Rich Carmel
Aroma: Sweet aroma with fruit notes
Taste: Fruit-heavy theme with hints of vanilla and caramel
Finish: Lingering earthy tones with notes of root vegetables.
