We thought we were all sold out of the 2015 release of our 'Cherry Adam' Straight Rye Whiskey. On a recent trip to see the Seahawks slaughter the Panthers, we visited our distributor on Bainbridge Island and found 6 cases in his warehouse on the tip of the island. We brought these back to Portland for the Christmas season.
The mash bill is 100% stone-ground rye from Bob's Red Mill. After distillation, the whiskey aged two years in toasted American oak barrels. It was then finished for two months in a barrel that previously held Hair of the Dog's "Cherry Adam from the Wood", a dark and strong ale aged on local cherries. It is bottled in numbered bottles.
To quote Stone Barn distiller Andy Garrison, "the deep cherry and dark chocolate from Adam are a good fit with the spicy, drier character of our rye."
