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.

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 one time used 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

Iowa Legendary Rye’s Private Reserve Rye is a new release product as of Spring 2018. Fans of our Aged Rye will be sure to love it. 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.
