Widow Jane American Oak Aged Rye Mash Whiskey
Widow Jane is a small batch whiskey producer, impressing the most discerning of whiskey lovers nationwide. Widow Jane Bourbon was named the #1 Bourbon by GQ magazine, and every bottle of Widow Jane whiskey, both Bourbons and Ryes are numbered by hand. The whiskey itself is from Kentucky but the barrels are aged in New York State where the pure limestone mineral water of the region complements whiskey production.
When Rye comes off the still it is sweet, grassy, and floral. A traditional “spicy” characteristic all come from the barrel. With this rye whiskey, Widow Jane's goal was to lightly oak the rye distillate in their 7-year bourbon barrels with added fresh oak and applewood staves. This is a light, tropical “summer” rye and makes great cocktails. A good bitter, or a splash of vermouth or ginger beer goes a long way.
